If you have been in the store recently, you probably went home with an invitation to a Science Cafe. Animal Exchange has been coordinating discussions with local scientists monthly for the last 2 years. We meet at Branded “72 a barbecue restaurant on Gude Drive to eat at 6 if we wish and then participate in some really fascinating discussions at 7PM.

Tuesday, June 21 Dr Michael Fuhrer from UMD will show us how Nanoscience Teaches Old Materials New Tricks.

Tuesday, June 28 Dr Ray Hoff from NASA willexplain how they are sampling the air column in our area.

There is always something new at Animal Exchange.

Blessing of the Animals

Filed under: Seasonal,Store News,Uncategorized — admin @ 2:46 pm

Since it’s May, it’s time again to Bless Your Pets! Animal Exchange has sponsored an ecumenical blessing on Friday of Memorial Day weekend at 4:30 PM every year since 1989. It is the most heartwarming afternoon as people and pets, young and old assemble for a brief ceremony and then a chance to have one or all of the clerics bless their pet. I guarantee not all will be dogs and cats : one year we even had a  goat. So join us here at the store on May 27 for a wonderful event.
