At Furlock Holmes, we strongly believe that children should be taught to respect animals from a young age and, as part of our animal welfare campaign, we aim to educate the younger generation about the importance of correct animal care, why rescues exist and also our way of having fun with the animals! We provide an innovative, hands-on, interactive approach at the same time as educating children and increasing their confidence around a variety of animals. Our Pet Club offers a variety of workshops, activities and events during term-time as well as school holidays.
What do Pet Club Workshops involve?
Pet Club Workshops involve teaching children about domestic animals, increasing their confidence around the animals and also having lots of animal-related fun! Activities include collecting the eggs from our free-range chickens, grooming the animals, creating and having a go at pony obstacle courses and making houses and toys for rabbits and guinea pigs!
Who can go to the Workshops?
The Workshops are open to children aged 4 to 12, although please get in touch if your child is older/younger as we can probably sort something out! Each workshop has a first aider present as well as DBS checked volunteers. The workshop timings can also be altered slightly in order to form part of holiday childcare arrangements.
