OHS Animal Advocate Program
Do you know someone who has always wanted to work with animals after they graduate?
We welcome all youth (ages 12-15) to sign-up to participate in our interactive secondary school PD day programming. This is a 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 will receive 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.
