Awareness Level Small Animal Emergency Sheltering Online April 10, 2021

Florida State Animal Response Coalition and State Agricultural Response Team would like to offer you an opportunity to take the Awareness Level Small Animal Emergency Sheltering class.

This is an eight-hour class held on one day. The video conference will start at 8am and end at about 4pm.

When disaster strikes, our team of trained volunteer responders will be there to rescue, shelter and protect Florida's companion animals. 

This Awareness Level (Level 1) class will give you the knowledge and skills you need to work in an emergency animal shelter or pet-friendly shelter. It will give you the expertise and practical experience required to become a emergency animal responder. The Awareness Level Small Animal Emergency Sheltering class is approved by FEMA and is certified by the Florida Division of Emergency Management. This class is required to respond to help companion animals during a disaster in Florida.

The fee is $59 for each participant. After successful completion of this class you will recieve a certificate suitable for framing and the opportunity to join the FLSARC volunteer team.
