CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Rescue Ranch's “Coffee with Critters” is coming up this Friday!
This morning we were joined by Leslie Smith, to learn more about the event, camps they have coming up, and animals you can meet at the ranch.
We are so excited about the events and programming at Rescue Ranch. On this morning's show, Smith brought along some of our ambassadors who will be involved: two Rabbits (Graham Cracker and Stella), and a unique Kenyan sand boa named "Pepper." The events at the ranch, are designed to help guests become familiar with and interact with their animal ambassadors.
Coffee with Critters
Rescue Ranch will host Coffee with Critters Friday, February 24 from 8 a.m. - 10 a.m. This drop-in, free community breakfast will introduce folks to a few of the more than 80 animal ambassadors and share how these permanent residents assist in weekly programing. In addition, staff will share the nonprofit’s plans for 2023.
Spring Break Camp
Critter Camps are designed to be fun, educational camp experiences for children who love animals. All camps involve daily interaction with animals, games, crafts and STEM activities. Campers will learn how to care for animals, provide enrichment, and to promote humane animal care to others.
