HHS Staff is now Pet CPR & First Aid Certified

Our staff recently participated in an all-day Pet CPR & First Aid training certification class at Oak Brook Kennel Club in a session taught by Kennel Club owner, Dave Grooms. The training program, based on human CPR principals, and created by a company called PetTech, is designed to prepare staff for pet emergencies at the shelter and in public. Since there is no 911 for pets, this training gives staff members unique added knowledge and tools that could potentially save more lives in the case of an emergency. Contact Dave Grooms at Oak Brook Kennel Club at 630-701-7677 to learn more about this life saving training.
