Animal Protective Foundation of Scotia, NY has some upcoming programs and events to help you learn more about life with cats (and dogs).
“When a Pet Dies: Grieving the Loss" will be presented Wednesday, March 6, from 7:00-8:30 pm at Haven, 703 Union St., Schenectady, NY.
The bereavement support staff from Haven of Schenectady, in partnership with the APF, will present a workshop to offer insights and practical tips to help grieving adults and families cope with the loss of their pets. The presentation is free and open to the public and is intended for adults. A children's version will be held at a later date. Seating is limited and pre-registration is encouraged. Contact Haven at 370-1666 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“What's in Your Pet's Food?” will be held Thursday, March 7 from 6:00-7:30 pm at the APF, 300 Maple Ave in Scotia. This is a great informational session to learn about pet nutrition.
Do you know what your pet is eating -- not the brand of food, but what's inside? So much of our animals' health depends on their nutritional intake, and not all pet food is created equal. Join us for this free educational program presented by Moira Nowc, general manager at Benson's Pet Center. Moira has gained in-depth knowledge of the pet food industry by visiting pet food manufacturers and through her quest to find the best type of food for her own pets.
Here's your chance to pick her brain on ingredients, allergens, dozens of different brands, and the best nutritional value for your money.
All About Pets Family Program will be held on Saturday, March 9, at 1:00 pm at the Schenectady County Public Library, 99 Clinton St., Schenectady, NY
Come to this family-friendly program to learn about the shelter, pets available for adoption, and how to select the right pet for your family. Dog trainers Diane Houck and Kathy Snowden will be on hand with their friendly canine pals who are also Canine Good Citizens. Register by calling the library at 388-4511.
