Kids Education

Upon request, the Union County Dog Warden will teach an animal safety and awareness class to children from age 3 and up.  The Union County Dog Warden has trained therapy dogs that can come to class for interactive teaching and to give students a chance to practice safety skills.  Help reduce the terrible tragedy of children injured by dog attacks!
