Updated Animal Transportation Best Practices @ Online Webinar - AAWA
Oct 16 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Animal relocation is an important tool in decreasing shelter crowding and saving more lives. In order to ensure safety, efficacy, and sustainability of relocation programs, consideration must be given to understanding state and local regulations. Animals selected for relocation should be carefully screened for physical and behavioral health, and programs should monitor and address stakeholder concerns proactively. This session will provide a broad overview of the role of animal relocation programs and discuss the indications for various program models, including key considerations to help decide if relocation is right for your agency and address general requirements for source and destination organizations. Recommendations will be presented in light of the updated Best Practices, a living document, designed to expand over time as community and animal needs adapt to societal changes and advancing knowledge of animal welfare.

This is the first in a new 4-part updated Best Practices Webinar Series: Companion Animal Transport (2019), based on the recently revised Best Practices document.

Approved for 1 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credit.

RedRover Responders Volunteer Training Workshop – Mobile, AL @ Spring Hill Presbyterian Church
Oct 19 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

The RedRover Responders volunteer corps are the backbone of our efforts to provide lifesaving care and sheltering for animal victims of natural disasters, puppy mills, hoarding, and other cases of cruelty and neglect. We welcome volunteers at all levels of experience, from a casual pet-lover to an experienced rescuer or animal care professional.

Our training program consists of attending a four hour in-person workshop and completing IS-100c, an online FEMA class.

Facilitated by an experienced RedRover Responders volunteer, the workshop helps you understand what it’s like to deploy with RedRover to a disaster or animal cruelty case. Group work and exercises will guide pre-deployment decision-making and packing, solidify understanding of key Standard Operating Guidelines, and prepare you for the realities of response.
