Animal Care Classes for Kids

The Children's Museum of New Hampshire and the NHSPCA team up to help kids learn about animal care! Kids and animals go together like peanut butter and jelly. From a young age, children are fascinated by animals and love to lavish affection on their pets. Sometimes, they can be a little overzealous, though, and that’s where humane education comes in, helping kids understand the best ways to interact with their pets.
