For those of you who are excited about the groundbreaking of the east side dog park in El Dorado Regional Park, it is important to remember that we need to get prepared in the event of the next earthquake
ASPCA has a Pet Safety Pack (https://www.aspca.org/form/free-pet-safety-pack?ms=wb_rig_petcaresection-generalsmall-201307&initialms=wb_rig_petcaresection-generalsmall-201307) that you should go on line and get.
