This junior animal care course is all about caring for animals correctly. Animals need to be cared for properly. Being cared for properly means cared for in the correct way for the type of animal. A rabbit needs to be cared for in a different way to a dog. And, a mouse needs to be cared for in a different way to a pig! However, all animals need to have just about all the same things in life as humans. They need to breathe, move, eat, drink, have fun, be kept warm, safe and clean. Looking after animals is a very responsible job. This course should help you to know and understand what some different animals need. This course is a beginning to being able to care for animals properly and is designed as an introduction to the subject of animal care.
