It was an opportunity to learn a bit more about the responsibilities of pet ownership at a ‘Stuffed Pet Adoption Day’ at the Yorkton Public Library Thursday.
The event started with a visit from Paws & Claws Animal Rescue who brought along three very popular visitors; cute and friendly pooches.
After a brief talk by Paws & Claws, and some up close time with the canine visitors for the youngsters, those attending were given a stuffed pet to adopt. But adoption has requirements, such as having the stuffed pet checked out by a ‘veterinarian’ and the youngsters making their pets collars.
The entire event was designed to give youngsters a better sense of what being a pet owner entails.
