Despite the heat, our Summer Camp kids are outside and ready for more fun and games! We love hosting children every summer who learn about compassion,  animal behaviors and rights, and how a shelter like ours operates. Plus with various field trips, educational games and activities, and daily animal-related tasks, thereโ€™s always fun to be had! 

Thank you for the best Summer Camp season so far! We canโ€™t wait for the upcoming weeks of more fun in the sun! ๐Ÿ•ถ๏ธ๐ŸŒž
