It was all about pet safety on Friday at the Kurth Memorial Library as kids and their parents learned all about how to take care of their animals.

The kids enjoyed a presentation by Kurth Animal Shelter Director Aaron Ramsey, about what to do and what not to do around different animals. They also got a hands-on experience with a shelter pet.

The library and the animal shelter teamed up to present the Mutt-i-grees curriculum, as a way to educate the public and raise awareness for pet safety.The Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum is an innovative Pr-K to grade 12 program that builds on children’s affinity for animals and highlights the unique characteristics and desirability of shelter pets.

The Curriculum teaches social and emotional skills and is unique in its bridging of humane education and the emerging field of Social and Emotional Learning.
