Urgent Transport: Moving Large Numbers of Animals by Air and Land @ Online Webinar - AAWA
Jan 15 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Not everything goes according to plan! Let’s discuss emergency and air transports and the use of the hub system on an urgent timeline.

Rather than letting perfect get in the way of good, we will examine how to safely and effectively move large numbers of animals during an emergency. We’ll also talk about how to implement a hub system to save lives during disasters (both natural or man-made). Attendees will take away ideas that will help them develop a process to conduct large-scale and emergency transports that emphasize the comfort and safety of each individual animal.

This webinar is for any individual or group that cares for animals in a shelter setting or works/volunteers in animal welfare.

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