The third annual Noah’s Ark Day is being held at Christ the Lord Church, 592 Tennent Ave., Pinole on Saturday, May 16th from 10:00am - 2:00pm.
This fun event is open to everyone and is FREE! There will be volunteers from animal rescue groups to show off animals that are available for adoption and to discuss how to care for them. There will be Guinea pigs, rabbits, chinchillas, chickens, parrots, dogs and a honey bee hive, among other animals.
Live animal presentations are also scheduled. From 11:00 - 11:30 am staff from the Lindsay Wildlife Museum in Walnut Creek will display and discuss the importance to our environment of birds of prey such as owls and hawks. From noon - 12:30 pm a volunteer from the East Bay SPCA will show off a rescue dog and discuss the important work that rescue groups do to find good homes for abandoned animals. From 1:30 - 2:00pm staff from Lick Your Eyeballs in Richmond will demonstrate reptiles such as iguanas. These presentations are particularly designed for children, but animal lovers of all ages are welcome and are bound to learn something new!
Come to see the animals, talk with people who know about animal care and behavior, appreciate some of the animals that are native to our area, and most especially, to have a wonderful time!
