We are Family

The ‘We are Family’ program is aimed at educating expectant parents, parents of young children and their respective care givers as to the importance of –

  • Preparing the pets and the home environment for the arrival of a baby
  • Actively supervising all interaction between child and pet
  • Securely separating them when they cannot be actively supervised.

Today our activity will involve the children doing a colouring sheet to highlight how to be safe around dogs, also have an opportunity how to say Hello to our Program Dogs with our Educators. Our mascots Victor and Victoria will be present during the day for photo opportunities.
