A series of free pet workshops to teach children how to look after animals will take place at Pets at Home in Harrogate at 2pm throughout half term.

The store team will be on hand to share their knowledge, quizzing the children on pet care in a ‘furry friends trail’. They will also help children get crafty and create their own pet puppets to become their own furry character.

Young pet lovers in Harrogate will get the chance to meet the ‘stars’ of the workshops including hamsters, gerbils and guinea pigs and assist the store team when they provide them with a nutritious afternoon snack.

Store manager Emma Beard said: “We want to help children have great fun across the Easter holidays as well as the chance to learn about responsible pet ownership.

“Young pet lovers in Harrogate will get an insight into the level of care needed to ensure these types of pets live happy, healthy lives, while the workshops also give parents a fun activity to entertain their children during the Easter holidays.”
