PHOENIX -- The Red Cross is helping pet owners get prepared in the event of an emergency.

The charitable organization has planned a class in the Valley to teach dog and cat owners what to do until they can get to a veterinarian.

During the class, participants will learn how to prepare for emergencies involving a dog or cat and how to protect themselves and their pet from suffering further injury.

"I would really recommend everybody who loves their animals to take the class now, so that you're ready when there's a disaster coming your way," said Trudy Thompson Rice of the American Red Cross Grand Canyon Chapter.

The Red Cross Pet First Aid course will be held on Sunday, Feb. 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Grand Canyon Chapter Piper Center at 6135 N. Black Canyon Highway in Phoenix. The cost is $70 per person.
