Since June 2011, Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation has sponsored pet first aid introductory and certification classes in Bridgeville and surrounding communities in the south and west of Pittsburgh. Although there is usually a charge for attending these classes, Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation is offering these sessions free of charge in an attempt to offer families the skills they can use to help save the life of their dear pet.
Currently scheduled classes are listed below, but new opportunities arise all the time as individuals and communities express an interest in hosting a class. For ongoing dates and times visit the Pet First Aid Classes page on our website, sign up for this blog to receive new articles on classes and other news in e-mail using the “Follow” button or sign-up link in the upper right, and friend us on Facebook or call Deb Chebatoris at 412-220-7800.
The next certification class is June 2 in Bridgeville, most other classes listed are introductory classes. Read our post about the difference between the two classes, and see below for details of date, time and place. Also, read about how the classes began, the first aid kits and donations of pet oxygen masks to communities in the series of posts The Pet First Aid Story.
You need to register for each session by calling Deb Chebatoris at 412-220-7800. Space is limited, and registrations are taken first come, first served.
