Programs in our Community 

Camps and classes don't work for your schedule? No problem! There are lots of ways to help dogs and cats and educate kids about the importance of responsible pet ownership. 

Classroom Programs - We can take our show on the road with these important classroom programs. From preschool to 4th grade, these programs help kids stay safe when interacting with animals. Learn more about our Classroom Programs

Pet Safety for Kids

Staying safe around pets is important! These resources are a great way to get started. 

Coloring Sheets - A fun, educational, and crafty way to teach kids about safe interactions with animals. Grab the markers and print off a coloring sheet to teach your child about Responsible Pet Ownership and How to Greet a Dog
Body Language - Help your child learn what a dog or cat is saying with their body! Dog Body Language and Cat Body Language flyers can help kids stay safe interacting with pets. 
Safe Interaction with Pets - Knowing how to greet and interact with pets is important. Polite people-manners often translate to polite dog-manners. Common Sense Dog Interaction can be easy!
