Pets and Vets

From service animals to household companions, our pets are so much more more than an animal. Our Second Annual Pets and Vets Week, October 19 – 22, 2022, connects you to resources and animals that are shown to improve quality of life. Explore your options through demonstrations, educational engagements and more!

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.

Plus, we will be joined by animal ambassadors from the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
