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
