From service animals to household companions, animals are shown to reduce stress and positively impact overall health in humans. From October 20 – 22, we encourage guests to join us for Pets and Vets week, including adoption opportunities from local shelters and animal welfare organizations.
This free community event is open to the public. We always welcome well-behaved service animals trained to assist visitors with disabilities during their Museum visit. You and your service animal will receive a free goodie bag upon arrival!

ALSO ON DISPLAY
The Wounded Warrior Dogs Project
The Wounded Warrior Dogs Project is a traveling exhibition of wooden dog sculptures created by master Ohio craftsman James Mellick. The dogs are intended to be symbolic of the sacrifice and exhibit the same wounds as their human companions in battle. The installation of wounded and rehabilitated dogs intends to raise awareness and focus the attention on the sacrifice and needs of wounded veterans. Five of the dogs will be on display.
