1st and 2nd grade were honored to participate in Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine’s educational outreach team-Animals in Focus. We heard from MS State veterinarian, Dr. Kimberly Woodruff; animal health technician, Christina Loftin; and 2 MSU vet students. We learned important steps in approaching and petting animals. We learned about different bones in an animals body, what to feed animals, and what not to feed animals. We loved touring the CARES facility and seeing all the animals up for adoption. CARES is such a blessing to this community. If you haven't seen their new facility, you definitely should make a trip. Thank you CARES for including us in this "pawesome" activity!!!
