The Idaho Humane Society previously had a Junior Vet Tech camp for 5thand 6thgrade students, however it lacked discussion in animal behavior and body language, important topics in keeping animals and humans safe. We proposed a 2-hour workshop that includes discussion on body language, Fear Free© handling techniques, observations of animals in shelter, and opportunities to practice skills taught during the workshop. Dependent on the success of this workshop, we are prepared to design and launch a series of career related themes in collaboration with the Idaho Humane Society.
