Humane Society to hosts disaster response training


Would you like to learn how you can help animals impacted by disaster or cruelty? The Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County will be hosting a Disaster Animal Responder training workshop on Sunday, June 3 from 10-3:00 p.m. conducted by RedRover, a nonprofit organization that provides national animal disaster response and training. This program is for adults interested in responding to disasters at either a local or national level.

This workshop 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 discuss volunteer disaster response as it applies specifically to Humane Society and Indian River County and our volunteers.

The fee for this workshop 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 sign up at
