Hands-on animal workshops this summer

WOOD GREEN Animal Shelters are holding various hands-on family workshops throughout the summer about the animals for different age groups.

Separate workshops are being held about the different types of animals rehomed by the Shelters to help children understand how to care for them and also to see behind the scenes of the County’s leading animal welfare charity.

Workshops are being held for children between 5 and 13-years-old and then for teenagers over 14-years-old and include hands-on creative activities with the themes of dogs, cats, small animals and field animals. Each workshop will include a full guided tour of the Shelter in Godmanchester so the children can find out how the animals are cared for and what happens on a daily basis to help make Wood Green so successful in finding wonderful new homes for the animals.

Anna Cowling, Education Officer for Wood Green Animal Shelters said: ‘We are really excited to be able to run these workshops for the first time at Wood Green and really hope we can highlight the importance of animal welfare to the young people and families that come along.’
