A group of preschoolers from New York City’s Resurrection Episcopal Day School recently spent some quality time with dogs and cats of all shapes and sizes during a tour of the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan.

The students toured the Adoption Center, led by ASPCA Volunteer Coordinator Beverly Pietrucha, where they met and observed plenty of adorable adoptable puppies, adult dogs, kittens and adult cats. ASPCA veterinarian Dr. Jennifer Lander demonstrated a basic health exam on a super-friendly therapy dog named Britney Spears.

For the tour’s grand finale, Dr. Lander brought in three six-week-old kittens for the students to interact with. It’s safe to say these young animal lovers learned a great deal about caring for animals and had a blast in the process!

Find out some ways your kids can help shelter pets.
