Do you know someone who has always wanted to work with animals after they graduate?

Animal-related careers are all about hard work, and compassion. Twice each year, the OHS offers this important interactive program for youth ages 12-15. This great opportunity for youth who are interested in animal welfare to learn all about the OHS and a wide variety of animal-related careers. At the end of the day, each participant receives an OHS Animal Advocate Certificate of Completion. In addition to a delicious pizza lunch, youth can look forward to the following activities throughout the day:

  • Behind-the-scenes tour of the OHS
  • Interaction and socialization with several OHS adoptable cats, dogs and small animals
  • Surgery viewing
  • Dog training demonstration and practice
  • Grooming demonstration and practice
  • Dog walking
  • Visits from knowledgeable OHS staff (i.e. Veterinary Technicians, Canine Behavioural Specialists)

The program runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and registration is $60.

Next session is Thursday, June 28.
