Eco Adventures after-school child care participants and junior assistant volunteers will present a responsible pet-keeping open house at Eco Adventures in Millersville from November 20-21 and December 18-19, from 4:30pm-6:00pm. The event will feature many of the rescued and displaced animals Eco Adventures houses at its facility for display. Attendees will learn about their rescue stories and get the opportunity to interact with them.
Through the years, Eco Adventures has gotten numerous calls from pet owners needing to rehome their pets as well as from concerned citizens with rescued animals they don’t know what to do with. In response, the Eco Adventures staff is proud to bring a responsible pet-keeping initiative to the community for the first time and involve their own after-school children and volunteers to take charge! The open house will help educate the public on what makes a good pet (and what doesn’t) as well as what it takes to keep animals healthy and happy during their lifespan. Education is key to helping get the word about committing to a pet for life. That’s right! In some cases, with turtles and parrots, they will need to be left in their owner’s will! Join EcoAdventures for a fun, informative, and interactive night with kids and animals.
The event will be open-house style and free to the public.
