Merial of Duluth, Ga., has partnered with Noah’s Wish, a nonprofit pet disaster relief organization in El Dorado Hills, Calif., to provide rabies awareness and prevention training to its volunteers.

As part of this effort, Merial technical service veterinarians will travel to nine training sessions in the United States and Canada to educate about 1,000 volunteers. The training runs through June.

“Thanks to Merial’s support, we are able to educate our volunteers about the signs and symptoms of rabies and the importance of rabies prevention when caring for animals affected by natural disasters,” said JoEllen Cimmino, director of Animal Health Services and Education at Noah’s Wish. “Our volunteers need to know this information, not only for the animals’ sake, but also for their own health and safety.”

Vincent Krogmann, U.S. marketing director, Merial Pet Vaccines, added, “Sponsorship of Noah’s Wish further strengthens our ongoing efforts in helping pets affected by natural disasters as it dovetails with our Paws to Save Pets program, which helps fund emergency relief for pet victims of disasters.”
