VERO BEACH, Florida – The Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County will be hosting a Disaster Animal Responders workshop on Sunday, August 20 from 10-3:30 p.m.

This Vero Beach workshop will be conducted by RedRover, a nonprofit organization that provides national animal disaster response and training.

This Humane Society program is for adults interested in helping animals impacted by disasters at either a local or national level.

RedRove’s class will cover:

  • The set-up and operation of a temporary emergency animal shelter
  • Caring for, feeding and comforting animals displaced by natural disasters
  • Reuniting animals with their families
  • Saving animals from puppy mills and other abusive and neglectful situations
  • Educating the public about issues such as puppy mills and animal hoarding
  • Disaster planning for pets

Immediately following RedRover’s program, HSVB’s Director of Animal Protective Services Ilka Daniel will cover animal disaster response as it applies specifically to our Humane Society and Indian River County.

The fee for this class is $45 and includes a RedRover t-shirt, training manual, and light lunch.

This program will be held at the Humane Society’s Adoption and Education Building, located at 6230 77th St., Vero Beach.

Space is limited. To register call (772) 571-6418 or sign up online at redrover.org/joinresponders.
