OHS Pet Care Crest Program
The OHS Pet Care Crest Program was developed for the many Girl Guides of Canada and Scouts Canada groups who visit the shelter to learn about animals and participate in a behind-the-scenes tour. This specialized program runs for one-hour in length and includes:
- A behind-the-scenes tour of the shelter
- An age-appropriate humane education lesson
- A visit to the cat gallery
- A small animal visit (if available)
The OHS Pet Care Crest Program has three crests available that participants can collect throughout their continued membership with Girl Guides of Canada and Scouts Canada.
- Pet Protector: This crest is appropriate for Beavers and Sparks groups. Participants learn about responsible pet ownership, by considering the daily needs of cats and dogs.
- Humane Hero: This crest is appropriate for Cub Scouts and Brownies groups. Participants learn about dog safety and will explore a number of dog-bite prevention exercises.
- Animal Advocate Crest: This crest is appropriate for Guides, Scouts and Pathfinders groups. Participants learn about and discuss animal welfare issues that exist in the Ottawa community.
Cost: $8/participant, which includes an OHS Pet Care Crest to take home. All program leaders are free, parents and siblings are $5.
To confirm your booking we will require a $25 non-refundable deposit (minimum fee) to be paid via a secure page.
