Not only will your child have positive experiences with animals, they will learn about animal characteristics, how to care for our pets and how to be responsible pet guardians – all while having a lot of fun. There will be behind the scenes shelter tours, animal crafts and enriching games. Campers will also spend cuddle time with shelter pups and kittens if available.
Our summer camps are one week long and run 9:00am – 3:30pm. Before and after care are available at an additional charge. Children can attend multiple weeks as the camp curriculum changes each week. Please complete the registration form and email, mail, fax or deliver it in person.

Summer 2017 Camp Dates:

Interested in becoming a veterinarian? A K-9 police officer? Or how about becoming a dog trainer? Careers with critters will explore the different jobs where humans partner with animals. We’ll also explore the different jobs animals may have in our communities.

Everything you need to know about pets! Children will explore what is needed to be a responsible pet owner, as well as what makes a good pet!
This is a fun and unique leadership opportunity for teen and adult volunteers who love animals and children. Applicants must be 13 or older. Volunteers need to have some experience and a desire to work with children age 6-11. Volunteers assist with prep work before and after class, clean up, assist with managing children’s behaviour, and supervise lunch and before/after camp care times. They also help the camp coordinator with animal lessons, art and games.
Volunteers can choose which week(s) they would prefer to work and must attend a training session. This training is mandatory for safety reasons.
All weeks are now full for volunteer camp assistants
We changed Chloe’s name to River! She responded to it from the moment we’ve called her that and her recall is coming along so well! It helps that she is very food motivated. She’s learned to shake both paws and give a high 10, spin, sit, wait, and lay down. Her favourite thing to do is run, and man is she fast! Her second favourite thing to do is play with her sister Ellie Mae! They tucker each other out every day! On walks, Ellie’s bloodhound nose points out all the best smells and River always wants to sniff it too. We think she is very happy here in her new home she certainly looks it! Thanks so much for helping us add River to our family!
