Learning about being a good pet owner

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.
