Reber Ranch, a local pet store that has served the Kent community for more than 33 years, is continuing to play a major role in giving back to the community by providing workshops at no charge that cover best practices in caring for pets.
“Every day we have customers that come into our stores to ask questions regarding their pets and how best to care for them,” said Bill Greene, General Manager for Reber Ranch. “And while we are always happy to help our customers, we felt it would be a great opportunity to host a series of workshops that cover some of the most frequently asked questions and concerns.”
Reber Ranch also has a veterinary clinic on the premises, so they combined the most frequently asked questions from their storefront, along with some of the most common reasons why pets end up in their clinic, and put together a series of educational workshops.
“We recently hosted a workshop about baby chicks and how to raise a healthy flock,” said Carrie Estrada, Marketing Manager for Reber Ranch. “It was a great turnout and a lot of fun. People in attendance also mentioned that they got useable, relevant information about raising chickens, and now feel comfortable raising a flock on their own.”
