Baby Animal Days

Baby Animal Days is being held at the American West Heritage Center in Wellsville, Cache County. The Baby Animal days are April 5th, 6th and 7th and will be held from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Admission is $8 for adults and $6 for ages 3–11. The center encourages participants to bring a can of food for the Cache Food Pantry to receive $1 off the entrance fee.

The Cache Humane Society will also be there with some baby animals from the shelter.

“We will have baby cats and baby dogs for looking and we will also have adult dogs available for adoption if people are interested,” Alyssa Walker, an employee at Cache Humane Society said. “Adult dogs can be adopted there but the puppies and kittens cannot. This is because people tend to spontaneously buy baby animals without being ready for them,” Walker said.

Dogs and cats are not the only animals you can find at the Baby Animal Days — rabbits, goats, lambs, calves, chicks, turtles, piglets and bears will be there as well.

“This is the second year we have brought our kids here and they just love it,” Aimee Browning, a Logan resident said. “It’s so fun for them to not only interact with the animals but to learn about them as well. They never run out of things to do when we come here.”

The employees in charge of Baby Animal Days are letting the community know the weather is not stopping the event.

“All the snow has melted, it’s green and it’s not too muddy,” said Megan Getz, an employee at American West Heritage Center. “Everything we have planned is still going. The only thing we’ve done is put some of the chickens inside just because they are so small.”

“I bring my grandkids because they love all of the different things to do,” said Larry Anderson, a participant of Baby Animal days. “I like it because it gets them out of the house and it’s a good place for families to spend time together.”
