Small Animals

The purpose of the 4-H Small Animal project is to give youth an opportunity to learn about the care of an animal. It will be your responsibility to feed, water, and care for your pet.

Any animal that is offered as a project cannot be exhibited as a small animal, with the exception of non-pedigreed rabbits.
