Responsible Pet Ownership for Kids at the BPLD!

petsSaturday, April 12th, 2 pm
Kids ages 3-12 and their parents can learn about animal behavior and responsible pet ownership with games and activities
provided by OC Animal Care!

OC Animal Care promotes responsible pet ownership; health and safety for people and animals and spay/neuter programs. They provide shelter and medical care for lost or stray animals and opportunities for adoption.

This event is part of our fourth annual “Buena Park Reads Together” program.  During the month of April, we will be offering interactive programs, book discussions and family fun inspired by this year’s chosen book, Weekends with Daisy by Sharon Kahn Luttrell.

In Weekends with Daisy, a volunteer service dog trainer tells the story of her relationships with an endearing yellow Labrador puppy and its felon partner in the Prison PUP program.  Join us this April for a month-long celebration of service animals and their caretakers, and the joy that animals bring to our lives!
