CHOOSING THE RIGHT PET FOR YOUR CHILD

     Caring for pets is a wonderful way children can learn to be responsible and compassionate members of society. They make for great "teachable moments" for little ones just beginning, and encourage curiosity and inquisitiveness. A pet can be a playmate, a calming friend and a means of communication for some. But before you take the plunge, there are many things to consider such as the child's age and personal preference, for example. Below are links to some informative and fun pages.
