For animal lovers, Senator Steve Glazer announced he will be hosting a telephone town hall on the issue of pet safety during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) during the shelter in place order.
The call will be held on Tuesday, March 24 at 3:00 pm.
His guests will be Melanie Sadek of the Valley Humane Society in Pleasanton and Brandy Kuentzel, general counsel and advocacy director, Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, San Francisco chapter.
According to Glazer, they will be discussing whether pets can transmit COVID-19; ideas for building your relationship with your pet while isolated together; safe pet exercise options that comply with social distancing and stay-at-home orders; updating your preparedness plan so that your pets have care if you are unable to be with them; how animal shelters are operating during this crisis; and what people can do to help animals from home.
There is limited capacity for this call. If you wish to participate please RSVP by 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March 24. A follow-up email will be sent to you with the call-in phone number and passcode.
Because of the number of participants, we will be taking only written questions for this conversation. Please submit any questions you may have before or during the call to [email protected]
You may submit questions whether or not you intend to participate. A recording of the Town Hall will be available at my website at https://sd07.senate.ca.gov/ Recordings of the first five Coronavirus Town Halls are already on the site.
