Kids Camps

If your child loves animals – our camp program is perfect for them!

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.

Volunteer Camp Assistants


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.

We wanted to send an adoption/birthday update on Cosmo (formally Delilah) Cosmo is doing as wonderful as ever. She spends her days tanning in front of the windows or sleeping soundly on any piece of furniture or clothing she can find. She is still a bit weary of the family dog but for the most part they co-exist in peace. She and our other cat Bynx get along better and better everyday, even sharing tanning spots and sharing from the same bowl of food. Cosmo still talks nonstop and follows us wherever we go, she is very curious!
We love Cosmo so much and feel so grateful that no one else adopted her before us.
Thank you as always, for all you do.

Meet. Adopt. Love.
