(Omaha, NE) -- Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is holding their annual Teddy Bear Weekend.

Visitors can bring their favorite stuffed animal to the zoo for repair and care from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Clinic will be held at the Harper Event Center located near Stingray Beach and Asian Highlands. Guests can bring their teddy bear or other stuffed animal to receive special treatment by skilled staff. Stuffed animals will go through a check-up including height, heartbeat, ear and eye exams and, if needed, a trip the emergency room. The zoo says that the Emergency Room will be closing at 1 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. They encourage visitors to arrive early if their furry friend needs a special trip to the ER.

The zoo says the clinic is a way for kids to familiarize themselves with the health care community and what they may expect if they need to visit a doctor, hospital or dentist.

Event activities are free to Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium members or with regular paid Zoo admission. Children ages 3-11 who bring in their favorite stuffed animal will receive free admission to the Zoo when accompanied by a paying adult.
