4-H Companion Animal Project Resources

Many youth are involved in Lancaster County 4-H's companion animal program, which includes rabbit, dog, cat and household pets. Youth ages 8–18 may participate by joining a club or as an independent member. Some clubs focus on a specific animal project while some clubs work on a variety of projects including specific animal projects. Youth are required to provide their own animal — raising an animal develops life skills such as goal setting, discipline and a sense of responsibility.
