Starting on March 9, local high school students can get a glimpse of the animal welfare world through Pet Helpers High School Speaker Series.
This program is designed for students with an interest in animals, animal welfare, or careers in animal welfare or veterinary science. Speakers will cover a variety of topics that will appeal to animal lovers and humanitarians in grades 9-12.
The group will meet the second Tuesday of every month and will be an opportunity for likeminded animal lovers to interact with professionals in fields that interest them. Spots are limited. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. See www.pethelpers.org for more information. Suggested donation: $5.
The fist session is on Tuesday, March 9 from 4:00-6:00 pm at Pet Helpers, 1447 Folly Road, James Island.
