Ready, Set, Pet: Pet Care for Youth

Have fun learning how to select and safely care for a variety of potential pets; be they furry, scaly or feathered. Learn pet requirements and feeding and grooming needs. Small animals will be on site for supervised practice and cuddling. Special guests will include local experts in the animal grooming, handling, or health fields. Students may also bring old t-shirts, pizza boxes, and wire hangers to make dog toys and cat hiding places for their own pets and to be donated to local shelters.
