Education

The Haven's Education Program is includes several different facets:

  • We work within the local school community and try to educate the K-12 students about responsible pet care in general as well as about parrot care.
  • We work with our local High schools as well as the local college vet tech program to invite students 9-12 to college age who want to pursue a career in the veterinary profession to participate in an internship at the Haven. This internship will allow each student to be exposed to many different aspects of the Haven including but not limited to:
    • medical information
    • paperwork/taxes
    • social media involvement
    • following our adoption and/or surrender process
    • fundraising
  • We strive hard to educate the general public in all we do. We do this in many different ways including the follow but not limited to the following:
    • printed information
    • social media/website information
    • public interaction and presentations
    • presentations to local companies and civic groups
    • workdays available to the public
    • other opportunities that the general public can become involved with to gain further knowledge of parrot care.
