Red Cross Offers Pet First Aid Class
Springfield, MO – We never know when our pets are going to be in need of interim emergency care from an accident or serious illness. The Greater Ozarks Chapter of the American Red Cross knows that pets are very much a part of our families and we want members of our community to have an opportunity to learn more about providing that emergency care until the pet may be taken to a veterinarian. For the pet enthusiast the chapter is offering a Pet First Aid Class on Saturday, February 27, 2010, beginning at 9 a.m. The class will include first aid and CPR for dogs and cats.
COST: $35.00 for one (dog or cat)
