Marijuana ... bingo!

Marijuana ... bingo!

While fielding calls to help save pets from drug-stash ingestion accidents and allergic reactions, the veterinary team at the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center keeps up morale and mood with some harmless tallying.

The staff at the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center take hundreds of emergency toxicology calls a day. We're 24/7, 365 days a year. So on holidays, our busiest and most stressful time, we play bingo. Each time we receive a call on a toxic substance, we mark it off our bingo cards. We play through each shift and the person who gets bingo wins a prize. Bingo makes the day fun and encourages participation among staff members.
