Lesson Plan: “Can I Have a Dog, Please?”

Animal shelters provide a much-needed safe haven for sick, injured, unwanted, homeless and lost pets. Shelters work hard to educate their constituents, care for the animals in their community and attempt to nd new homes for pets.

This lesson provides students with the opportunity to reflect on the many factors families must consider when they think about adding a pet to their home. By considering such factors, students will engage problem-solving skills to learn about what it takes to be responsible pet owners.
