Meet Victoria Stilwell
On Thursday, April 4, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is coming to The Anti-Cruelty Society to share some important information about dog bite prevention. They are holding a press conference at The Anti-Cruelty Society to report on a national survey results about dog bites in honor of National Dog Bite Prevention Week. The survey is sponsored by State Farm Insurance and The Insurance Information Institute who will present the 2018 stats about dog bites and offer information about dog bite prevention. Dog trainer and TV personality Victoria Stilwell will be available for the press conference.

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about keeping your pets and your family safe. Participants will be free to ask questions of their own or just learn from the expert. This is a free event from 11:00 a.m. to noon. Please come meet this amazing dog trainer!
