Harrisburg Kennel Club Sponsors K-9 First Aid Course

The Harrisburg Kennel Club, along with the Penn State Hershey Life Lion Critical Care Transport, is sponsoring a course this Friday that teaches first responders how to deal with dogs and other animals in emergencies.

The Life Lion is the helicopter that flew K9 Zeke, the 2013 AKC Humane Fund Awards for Canine Excellence (ACE) winner in the Uniformed Service K-9 category, to the hospital after he was shot in the neck by a suspect, helping to save his life! Read more about Zeke’s ordeal here.

Our appreciation goes to HKC for sponsoring such an important course. If you’re a first responder in the Northeast, check out the flyer:
