Families are invited to recognize and celebrate animals who serve in our community from 1 to 3 p.m., Sat., Oct. 14, at Vancouver’s Water Resources Education Center. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to meet several lovable puppies from the Guiding Eyes of Clark County, a guide dog, puppy-raising club.

From 1 to 2 p.m., take a selfie with Napoleon, the therapy alpaca, sharing smiles wherever he goes. Kids can read to furry friends as part of Columbia River Pet Partners’ “Reading to the Dogs” program.

The Water Center also welcomes Parrots for Patriots, which will display several colorful birds and provide information on how their organization helps pair veterans with available companion parrots.
