Many families bring pets into the family during the Christmas season, but have no thoughts about proper care or training. Rockwall County 4-H will be hosting a short term project for families with kids 8 and in the third grade to 18 who are getting a pet for Christmas. The project will meet 4 times and provide the basics on pet care. The first meeting will meet on Tuesday, January 14th, from 5:30 - 6:30 pm at the Rockwall County Extension Office, 915 Whitmore St. Suite B, Rockwall. Sequential meetings will be the next three Tuesday evenings at the same time. The cost is $40.00 Pre-registration required. Contact the Extension Office at 972.204.7660 to pre-register. At least one parent/guardian will attend with the young person. Pets will not attend the first meeting.
