Description:

You can’t call 9-1-1 to care for an injured pet. Until you get your animal to a veterinarian, you are their first responder. During a two-hour workshop in Cranberry on Saturday, November 18 starting at 12:30, pet owners will learn to address the most common pet emergencies including bleeding, heat or cold injuries, seizures, poisoning, choking and more. It will also cover assessing a pet’s vital signs and assembling a pet first aid kit.

Demonstrations will use stuffed animals and CPR manikins – not living pets. The course, which will take place in the Municipal Center, is open to anyone 18 or older and for those 11 through 17 if accompanied by a parent or guardian. A Pet First Aid program fee of $29 for Township residents, or $34 for non-residents, is payable at the time of registration.

Then on Sunday afternoon, December, 3 between 2:00 and 5:00, you can take photos of your pet with Santa. You will have 15 minutes with St. Nick to pose him with up to three pets and, using your own camera, take as many shots as you please. Pet Photos with Santa carry a resident program fee of $10, $15 for non-residents.

To register for either program, go to the Information Desk of the Parks & Recreation department, call 724-779-4FUN (4386), or go online to Cranberry4FUN/Register.
