Are You Into It?

“Lions, tigers, and bears do not make good pets but many other animals do. The 4-H pet project helps you explore what kind of pet fits into your family’s lifestyle and how to be an excellent caretaker of your pet.
If you have already signed up for this 4-H project, come on in and get started. If you haven't signed up yet, contact your local county office and become a member today.
