Find out how ferrets can be the perfect home companion at Petco's family-friendly "Meet the Critters" event
SAN DIEGO, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As children start settling back in to school this month, they will be faced with meeting strict deadlines and more responsibility. Pet ferrets are a fun way to help young students learn these important skills at home so they're ready to take on the new school year. On September 14-15, 2013 from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m., families can attend Petco's free, family-friendly "Meet the Critters" event to learn more about this popular mammal and how ferrets can be the ideal academic companions for students at home, through the school year and beyond.
Here are three ways a pet ferret can help motivate children outside the classroom:
At the weekend-long event, families and friends can learn from knowledgeable Petco associates about how to introduce ferrets in to a loving home. Attendees will also learn about the complete health of this animal including keeping them physically fit, mentally alert, socially engaged and emotionally happy. Petco is aware that some cities and states do not allow ferrets, and these locations will focus on guinea pigs instead. Contact individual stores in the area for more information.
