It’s ‘Science Night’ at Shelter Hope Pet Shop

Shelter Hope Pet Shop is teaming up with students from the Valencia High School STEM Club to host another Kids’ Night Out on Friday, May 10.

“This one will be a special one because we have students coming to do science projects with the kids,” said Dani Caouette, owner of the Santa Clarita Shelter Hope Pet Shop.

The science night is expected to have various stations for different age groups so every child will have an activity that suits them.

Kids will learn about energy and how water interacts with different surfaces as well as how different materials react to heat.

Parents can drop off their children to get a night off while giving the kids a chance to do something different, as it is not only fun and creative but also educational, Caouette said.

The kids will also be joined by the shelter’s animals and will be learning how to be gentle and care for them.

“Kids are always bugging their parents to get a puppy or kitten, but they have to understand how much is involved in taking care of them first,” Caouette said.

All the proceeds from the event will go toward the shelter’s vet bill fund as spring is kitten season and the shelter has also just rescued two puppies with parvovirus, according to Caouette.

Kids’ Night Out is open to any children from kindergarten up. Tickets are $25 per child or $15 for each sibling. It will be held from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, May 10, at the Shelter Hope Pet Shop located at 24201 Valencia Blvd., No. 2335 in Valencia.
