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.

  • How to choose, prepare for and care for a pet
  • What animals need to live healthy, happy lives and how to treat them well
