OHS Pet Care Crest Program
NEW AT THE OHS: VIRTUAL PET CARE CREST PROGRAM!
As a result of the COVID-19 public health crisis, we have suspended on-site programming.
The OHS is now offering our OHS Pet Care Crest Program virtually through Zoom! This specialized program runs for one hour in length and includes:
- An age-appropriate humane education lesson
- A virtual tour of the OHS
- A virtual meet and greet with an OHS animal (NOTE: subject to availability)
- Take away activity to be completed post-session
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 Group. Participants learn about dog safety and will explore a number of dog-bite prevention exercises.
- Animal Advocate: This crest is appropriate for Guides, Scouts, and Pathfinders groups. Participants learn about and discuss animal welfare issues that exist in the Ottawa community.
Note: crests will be mailed to your group leader post-session.
Cost: This program is FREE of charge.
