The CTTC Valley Chapter released the following information on Nov. 17, 2021 re: their Friday, Oct. 15, 2021 meeting at 7:00 PM PST via Zoom.

Emergency Preparedness for Pets

Having recently gone through the Woolsey Fire and its evacuations and living in earthquake country means we should all be wary of the probable consequences of future disasters. Since we all have pets, this means we have a dual responsibility – being prepared not only for ourselves, but also for our pets

In an emergency, your pets will be even more dependent on you for their safety and well-being. Your family's disaster plans must include your tortoises, turtles, and furry family members too. This Friday, we will learn what to do to keep your beloved pets safe both before and after a disaster!

Pet Trusts

Along the same line, we will also discuss the need for a pet trust. Have you thought about what might happen to your pet if you were not around to take care of them? They could end up in a shelter – or worse. However, with proper planning, that can be avoided. A pet trust is a legal document that will provide for future care of your pets in case you are not around for them. We will talk about how you might obtain or make one.

Chapter Elections

It's that time of the year again. Most of our tortoises and turtles are in brumation, but it's also time for our Valley Chapter officer elections. Our current officers and board members have indicated their willingness to conyinue, but we would welcome you to join our leadership. Take a turn at helping us plan for 2022. Will we have an annual show? Where will we go for our annual field trip? Give us your input.

Our board has decided we should wait a bit for our return to in-person meetings, coupled with a health issue of one of our leaders. Therefore, we will be conducting this Friday evening's meeting via Zoom.See you all this Friday evening at 7:00 pm! Next month, we will attempt to conduct an in-person and/or a hybrid (both in-person and via Zoom).
