Amarillo Zoo hosting Teddy Bear Clinic Sept. 9

Is your child's favorite stuffed friend feeling under the weather? The Amarillo Zoo is hosting a Teddy Bear Clinic Saturday, September 9. The clinic begins at 1:00 p.m. and continues to 3:00 p.m. Children 12 and under who bring a teddy bear or other stuffed animal toy get free admission when accompanied by a paid adult.

Teddy Bears and other stuffed toys can visit the zoo's Teddy Bear First Aid Tent and receive a free check-up from special teddy bear doctors courtesy of Noah's Ark Pet Hospital and ZOOcrew volunteers. Volunteers will be on hand to give your bear any necessary stitches or other minor repairs needed. Each patient receives a "Beary Good Health" certificate and the event will include special enrichment activities too. The Amarillo Zoo is located at NE 24th Ave. and Dumas Highway inside Thompson Park.
