On Friday, September 29th, Buckatunna School’s third grade students traveled to Waynesboro to visit the Waynesboro Animal Clinic and W.A.R. (Waynesboro Animal Rescue). At the Waynesboro Animal Clinic, students toured various sections of the animal clinic, such as examination rooms, operating rooms, holding areas, and kennels. Students also viewed x-rays of anatomical structures of animals and participated in an interactive presentation about harmful parasites. After touring the clinic, students then journeyed to the Waynesboro Animal Rescue. During their visit, students learned about responsible pet care, the consequences of animal neglect, the process of rehabilitation, and the compassion it takes to service wounded animals. Students were also able to play with some of the rehabilitated dogs at W.A.R. Students finalized their field-trip with lunch at the Waynesboro City Park.
