Pet World Lawrence

Thursday, January 16th, 2014 - Lots of B-Day parties this weekend, Junior Volunteer info, and 2 year old visitors!

Welcome to our new department blogs! We want to keep our customers updated on what's going on in every area of our store and this is where the managers will be posting about new products, sharing fun pictures and videos, and keeping you up to date on new products and sales!

TwinGirlsThis week in Kids Programs we'll be reading Verdi for Storytime LIVE on Saturday with a couple of snakes for guests then on Sunday we'll be looking at salt water fish for Feature Creature! Both of these programs, as always, are completely free and open to anyone. Click the links for more information.

Planning on having your child's birthday party at Pet World? Make sure you fill out a request form as early as possible because spots book up quickly. This weekend is completely booked for parties!

We love it when families visit the store. Today we had twin, two year old girls come in and they had a blast holding lots of different hamsters. If you've ever seen our summer camp shirts you know we believe in kids getting "peed on, pooped on, and down right dirty!" Our employees are trained to teach children how to become expert animal handlers and we love to teach. Maybe these two little girls will grow up to join our Junior Volunteer Staff!

Speaking of Jr.Volunteers, we're currently accepting JV applicaions through the month of January. Ande will be making call backs at the end of January and the new volunteer orientation will be on February 15 at noon for those childreen who recieved a call that they were accepted into the program. If you know an adventurous, animal loving child between the ages of 11 and 15, this program might be a great fit!

See you soon!
