Edmonton caters to young animal lovers

October 5, 2017 by  

The Edmonton Humane Society has organized a special day of fun that will give kids a chance to explore the world of veterinary medicine while learning more about animal welfare.

The organization will be hosting a Vets in Training day camp, and it is geared towards those who are between the ages of 9 and 12. Those who participate will be able to discover what veterinarians do in the course of their work, and also what education and other training they will need should they choose this career for themselves. They will be given a behind-the-scenes look at the society’s medical clinic, and then practice some of the techniques they have seen on their own stuffed animal.

Each child who takes part in the day will be given a special “graduation certificate” and will be able to talk one-on-one with members of the society’s educational and medical staff. The fee for children of volunteers and staff members will be $49.50, while the general public will be asked to pay $55. Stationery printers can supply completion certificates and other materials for an event like this.

This is one of a series of camps that will hosted by the Edmonton Humane Society, and it will be held on December 29 at 13620 163 Street Northwest. More details can be obtained by contacting the organizer through its website.
