Dog Days

and

Cat Naps

Purpose
The purpose of this pathfinder is to provide elementary-aged children (1st through 5th grade) with information about choosing, finding, and caring for a pet. Many children at this age badly want a pet; however, they don't know all the work that goes into one. Even if they realize that it will take a lot of time and effort, they aren't aware of exactly how to go about choosing one, finding one, and caring for one. This pathfinder was  developed to show them where to find information on how to do all of this.
