Lee County Domestic Animal Services will offer a Pet Safety Program for children of all ages from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday, July 28, in the conference room at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers.
The program is an opportunity for parents to learn, along with their children, how to safely interact with a dog and read its body language. The program will include a discussion of socialization, responsible pet ownership, and avoiding risky situations.
This will be interactive for the entire family, so parents are asked to stay with their children. There will be games that will allow for fun learning. The class content is similar to the long-running program that Domestic Animal Services offers in area summer camps. Seating is limited to 35 people on a first-come basis.
Adoption hours are 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday at Animal Services, 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office off Six Mile Cypress Parkway.
