Touching Lives, Warming Hearts

Through Human & Animal Interactions

Step Two: Group Evaluation

We are resuming Group Evaluations at the locations listed below.  Because of COVID-19, only you can attend. If someone accompanies you, that person/s will need to wait outside. You WILL be required to wear a mask and comply with the 6-foot social distancing guidelines during the Group Evaluation.

Prerequisite:  You must have attended a KPETS Orientation Session.

If two people will be volunteering with the same pet it is recommended that each handler test at a separate group evaluation session.  Many pets get stressed by switching between handlers and/or by the additional time needed to run through each exercise with each handler.

Canine Group Evaluation Dates and Locations:

Lancaster County:  Fourth Wednesday of each month (except December) at 6:00pm Trinity Reformed United Church of Christ Fellowship Hall, 450 West Main Street, Mountville, PA

York County:  The second and third Saturday of each month at 9:00 am at Tail Country Pet Resort (formerly TailBanger’s Pet Resort) – 7580 Hill Road, Dallastown, PA

Adams County:  Wednesday, March 31,2021 at 6:30pm at Littlestown Senior Center 10 E Locust St, Littlestown, PA

TBD:  Warwick Farm 861 Ballstown Rd., Lititz, PA  17543

Small Animal (cat, rabbit and mini pig) evaluation

You and your pet will be asked to demonstrate basic obedience skills. The evaluator will observe how you and your pet react to crowds, other pets, rough petting, loud noises, wheel chairs or walkers, etc. Our trained evaluators will provide guidance in specific areas, if necessary.

If your pet is not ready, the evaluator will make suggestions on what needs to be worked on. Feel free to practice their suggestions, and try again at a later date.
