We’re dedicated to promoting responsible pet ownership and safety around animals in our community, so as part of our outreach activities we offer educational visits to local preschools and kindergartens.

Some of the topics covered in each session include:

  • How to choose, prepare for and care for a pet
  • What animals need to live healthy, happy lives and how to treat them well
  • How to behave safely around animals
  • How to recognise signs that an animal is upset

Every school visit finishes with a Q and A session where students can ask our expert anything they like about animal care and behaviour. Students will gain an awareness of the joys and challenges of being a pet owner as well as a basic understanding of how to be safe around animals.
