Pets have many of the same needs that we do. Come learn about what it takes to care for a dog or cat and how to keep them happy, healthy and safe. In addition to hands-on activities and crafts, you will tour PAWS Companion Animal Shelter where you will see the dogs and cats who call PAWS their temporary home.
