You'll have a hands-on learning experience while you're studying Animal Care at Toi Ohomai. You'll take care of a wide range of small and large animals on-site every morning, and gain both national and specialist qualifications that are widely recognised in the industry.

Join our graduates working as zoo keepers, animal park managers and tourist farm presenters, in places like research laboratories, pet shops, boarding kennels and veterinary clinics. Our programmes have been designed to be flexible and allow a high degree of portability between sectors of the animal care and animal handling industries.
