    Animal Care & Handling is a two-semester program designed for students with an interest in careers working with animals.  Through hands-on learning and engaging academic coursework, students will develop the skills and knowledge necessary to obtain entry-level employment in a pet store, animal research facility, grooming shop, boarding kennel or animal shelter.  This course will focus primarily on the following animal species: small mammals (mice, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, plus more), companion birds, companion reptiles and amphibians, freshwater aquarium fish, well-health for dogs and cats, and micro-farm livestock production basics (raising poultry, micro-farm animals, bees, and more.)

    Each semester will be taught separate from the previous semester’s content making it easier for students to start the program either term.  Students can take one or both semesters. It can be a stand-alone course but can also help prepare some students to move into the Veterinary Assistant Program the following year.
