Free dog and cat first aid class to be held in Del Mar

A free clinic will be offered for pet owners to assist them in preparing for emergencies involving their dogs and cats. Participants will learn how to provide prompt, effective first aid and care to protect themselves and the animal from further harm, injury or suffering during a household emergency or major disaster such as an earthquake or wildfire evacuation.

The workshop will take place from 4-6 p.m. on Sunday, March 25, at The Del Mar Powerhouse, 1600 Coast Blvd., Del Mar.

The instructor is Max Wilson, an American Red Cross National Authorized Provider, who has taught a wide range of emergency response and specialty marine safety courses since 1975.

“Wilson’s extensive, wide-ranging experience and real-world, hands-on examples keep the material entertaining, practical and easy to understand,” said Linette Page, an operations leader for the Solana Beach Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).

This is a free community event sponsored by the CERT organizations in Del Mar, Solana Beach, and Rancho Santa Fe. Two pet-centric businesses, Tsavo’s Canine Rehabilitation and Fitness Center and Dexter’s Deli of Del Mar are underwriting the cost of the course so it can be offered free to the community.

Parking is limited so carpooling is advised.

Please do not bring pets to the class!
