Teach kids when to "stay away"

  • Leave animals alone when they are eating, sleeping, chewing on a toy, or taking care of young puppies or kittens.
  • Teach children to put the food down and not touch it again, if they must feed the dog.
  • Children should never attempt to touch or move an injured animal, but should call an adult for help.
  • Avoid animals that are outside the home, even friend's pets. Many children are bitten because they don't realize that a friend's pet doesn't remember them. Never go into a friend's yard without a member of the family present.
  • Stay back from animals on chains, or animals inside cars or trucks.
  • Never approach an animal loose on the street.
  • Always avoid wild animals.
