Youth Participate in Hands-on Responsible Pet Grooming Academy

Summer would not be complete without the annual Arlington Animal Services Center Youth Pet Grooming Academy. This year, Community Services Educator Chris Huff educated a total of 26 youth in responsible pet grooming and ownership. Children ages eight through 17 participated in this fun, hands-on learning event. They spent time washing, brushing, trimming nails, and socializing with animals. Dogs from Dog Scouts of America, and 2011 Pet Calendar celebrity “Leroy Brown” of Respect A Bull, Inc., received special grooming attention.

Each year the Responsible Pet Grooming Academy for youth provides a great summer activity at a nominal fee. Children dress to get wet, and experience two hours of excitement and learning at the Animal Services Center at 1000 S.E. Green Oaks Boulevard. Be watching the Animal Services website for information about upcoming classes in 2012.
