LEPP: Update, Animals & Register Guard Article

Last Saturday’s LEPP meeting resulted in a big list of participants interested in more. We’re currently putting all the names in the computer for follow up. We’re also starting to compile a list of local resources with who does what, where to call, links to online resources and more. We’ll be posting that on this website for easy reference when it’s ready.

One of the topics that many people were concerned about was the issue of animals in disaster. Laurie Smart has tracked down an ongoing program aimed at training people in the community to assist with animals in dire situations.
