Animal Protection and Zoocheck’s *free* training workshop on the issue

Pets in Canada *is *Wednesday September 26.*

The workshop will be led by experts in the field and will cover issues
pertaining to the trade, regulation, seizure and sheltering of exotic
animals and the associated animal welfare, public health and
safety (zoonotic diseases) and environmental risks. Research indicated few
people are aware of their specialized needs and improper care can lead to
illness, injury and death of these animals and their human caregivers. If
not addressed appropriately, this can put a strain on local animal
shelters, compromise community health and threaten native wildlife
