Name: Res-PAW-nsibility: Being a
Responsible Pet Owner
What: This program teaches children how to care for
a pet. Girls will learn about the many components to properly care for a
pet. Each pet care item in the lesson is identified
and discussed to help the girls learn about proper care of a pet. This is a
great tie-in with the 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Journey.

of the shelter and will complete one hour of community service. The community service project will involve

well-being of those animals at Wayside Waifs.
Projects may vary depending upon shelter needs.
