Campers and Critters -- Oh My!
Think Washington Animal Rescue League, and you probably think cats and dogs. That's mostly true -- unless it is Caring Kids --All About Animals -- Camp week at the League. For five days in late June, 17 campers were introduced to, and visited, with snakes, turtles, bunnies, bats, hissing cockroaches (true!), goats, sheep, horses, chickens and a number of other animals including a baby alligator. The campers learned about companion animal care, habitat destruction, and a myriad of other issues concerning companion, exotic, farm, and wild animals. We were fortunate to have Joyce Davis,a WARL supporter and photographer, chronicle our adventures throughout the week. To see many more of Joyce's pictures click on the group picture of campers to the right.
The two remaining sessions of Caring Kids Camp 2012, Animals and Art and Training 101 are completely full. To attend camp at the League during the summer of 2013, check back with us in February.
