"National Kids and Pets Day" is coming up and the Guernsey County Dog Shelter is hosting a family-friendly event at the shelter. On Thursday, April 26, from 6 to 8 p.m., families are invited to visit the shelter, 62824 Bennett Ave., to take part in the activities.

National Kids and Pets Day is both a day to celebrate the bonds children and pets can share and a day to remember safety where our pets and children are concerned.

Activities include making treats and toys for the dogs, various station for kids to explore, and facts about being a pet owner. The Dog Shelter will also be offering discounted adoptions.
