AEAC's technician Sarah Dehn took some exotic critters on the road to visit kids participating in PAWS.


The Speedway Jr. High School PAWS Club stands for Plugs for Animal Welfare and Service.  Students learn about area rescue groups, adopting pets, and proper pet care.  They also learn how animals help people and we can help animals in need. 

Various guest speakers attend the meetings, along with trained, people-friendly animals.  Students have an opportunity to interact with the different animals and learn how to help animals live a better life.

On Tuesday Sarah visited the PAWS Club and brought with her rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, and parakeets, and a ball python. The students loved meeting the animals! They practiced giving the critters full examinations. We love encouraging young students to learn about S.TE.M. careers!
