Our final program for the summer will feature two shows (2 p.m. and 3 p.m.) with

domestic pets, once they are discovered and rescued? Well, they get extra-good care from experts
who know what wild animals need to be healthy and happy. Wild Things always brings a variety of animals to share so that we can be better educated partners who care for all living things!
