Denver Zoo Hosting its Teddy Bear Clinic in September
Stuffed animals and their kid caretakers can learn all about healthy habits at the Denver Zoo's third annual Teddy Bear Clinic this month.
When you go to the Denver Zoo on Saturday, September 17, kids can bring their stuffed animals to different stations set up throughout the zoo from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. where volunteers and staff will perform "medical" procedures for the stuffed animals, while teaching kids and guests about the care that zookeepers and veterinarians provide the animals at the zoo.
Kids also have a chance to meet Elbert, the Denver Zoo's and Children's Hospital Colorado's mascot, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Explore the Shore Play Area.
Not only is this event educational and interactive, but it's also super adorable. Let's be real - what parent or human being doesn't love watching children treat their stuffed animals like real little babies? It's the cutest thing ever, and while your single friends might get annoyed, grandparents will just adore seeing Facebook updates of stuffed animals getting their blood pressure checked by their grandkids. #GrandkidsGoals, right? Right.
The Denver Zoo's Teddy Bear Clinic is included with regular admission, which costs $12 for kids ages 3 to 11, $17 for ages 12 to 64, and $14 for seniors 65 and older.
