Lopez Island Library welcomes Dr. Sally Hodson, children’s book author and K-12 educator, for this special kids program on pet safety. The Pet Pals! program teaches children learn how to greet dogs and cats, steps for caring for pets, when to leave pets alone and what to do when confronted by a scary dog or cat. The program is interactive with life-sized plush dogs and cats for demonstration. Lovable “real” guest dogs help kids practice what they learn. The program will include information for parents and children called “Pet Talk” – what dogs and cats communicate with body language and sounds. Children who participate in an education program about the humane treatment of animals acquire many skills that can help them become more caring and responsible adults. Don’t miss this fun and essential program for kids! Adults welcome too!
