Pets at Home

Pets at Home are long-term partners of The Scout Association and support both the Beavers Animal Friends badge and the Cubs Animal Carer badge.

Pets at Home support both the Beavers Animal Friends badge and the Cubs Animal Carer badge.

Pets at Home helped us create resources to help young people achieve both badges.

Sharing their skills and knowledge, Pets at Home will encourage Beavers and Cubs to learn how to care for different animal species and develop skills for life.

As well as sponsoring our Beavers Animal Friends and Beavers Animal Carer activity badges, Pets at Home will provide you with 

  • A range of resources to support the badges.
  • Invitations to pet workshops in their stores across the country (these are not currently running due to the pandemic)

Badge and resources

As our partner for the Beavers Animal Friends badge, and the Cubs Animal Carer badge everyone between 6 - 11 years old can now learn more about caring for our furry friends.

Be prepared to develop skills for life in the wonderful world of pets with the activity packs below, or use our wonderful new Programme Planning Tool by clicking on the links under the badge images on this page.

Adapt these activities to try out at home

These activities were originally designed for groups meeting face-to-face, so you may have to think on your feet to make them work in the (very unique) situation we’re in. Anyone can be the person leading the game or activity, so why not let young people take charge? Instead of chatting in a real-life group, you could use the internet (safely) or talk to someone at home.
