Pets at Home hosts free pet workshops

Posted onPosted on 5th Apr

Pets at Home in Mansfield has free interactive ‘My Pet Pals’ workshop in-store over the Easter holidays, from 6th April to 28th April.

The workshops will focus on caring for small animals, such as guinea pigs, gerbils and rabbits, teaching children the responsibilities of owning them but also how rewarding these pets can be and how to care for them. Children will also learn how to interact with them safely too.

Taking place every day in the Mansfield store at 11.30am, the workshops are aimed at children between the ages of 5-11 and will be hosted by the friendly and knowledgeable Pets at Home pet care advisors.

Catherine Murphy, store manager at Mansfield Pets at Home, said: “The My Pet Pals workshops demonstrate how rewarding pets can be and how to care for them, making sure parents and kids understand pet welfare and responsible pet ownership. It’s a great way of learning how to keep small furries happy and healthy during a fun and hands-on experience!”

The workshops will cover the five key welfare needs for each – shelter, food and water, good health, appropriate company and the right living environment. Each workshop lasts 30 minutes and is free to attend.

The free workshops will run every day during the Easter school holidays at 11.30am and bookings can be made at

All kids attending workshops will receive an exciting activity book, pet stickers and colouring sheets.
