In Module One, we looked at some general considerations for caring for your cat or dog (e.g. the Five Freedoms).
In this module, we examined some of the more specific requirements that cats and dogs need. We then asked you to think about applying that knowledge as you considered the actual skills you might need when caring for your pet. How much water and food will they need? How often? How much space do you have to provide for them? What kinds of living conditions will you need to ensure they have enough airflow, light, etc.?
You were also asked to apply some of your new knowledge. The volunteer job application asked you to consider, “What would you actually need to know and do as a volunteer caring for a dog or cat?”
Finally, we looked at the topic of animal protection as provided for by the Codes of Practice and various forms of legislation at different levels of government.
