FROM crate training to the importance of vaccinations, the Sunraysia Animal Rehousing Group (SARG) Happy Pets Community Education Program yesterday covered a wide range of topics suited to pet ­owners and people considering adopting an animal.

Free workshops promoted ­responsible pet ownership with the event ultimately aiming to decrease the number of dogs that need to be rehoused each year.
