Small Animals (Animal Science)

Dog and cat playing together in the grass.

The 4-H Small Animal Project will give you the opportunity to learn about the life history, management, and care of a pet of your choice. Learn about a variety of small pets, such as birds, guinea pigs, iguanas, snakes or frogs. Topics may include feeding, housing and daily needs, pet selection, body parts, pet communication, handling, genetics, and reproduction. You will also enjoy participating with your friends in the other activities of your 4-H club. These may include tours, camps, shows, club parties, and club meetings. You will also get to present information about your pet at the county fair.
