Sixty campers attended one of four Caring Kids Camps at the Humane Rescue Alliance during the summer. Campers created masterpieces in art camp, were introduced to animal welfare careers,including veterinary medicine, event planning, lobbying, international campaigns, social media, and shelter work in careers camp. And, they met shelter animals, foster animals, dogs from rescue groups, and dogs with jobs (DCFDEMS/FEMA dog and Guiding Eyes for the Blind trainees and graduates) in advocacy camp. Registration for spring break and summer camp 2019 will begin in early February.
Most District of Columbia students start school next week. Our humane education program consists of classroom programs (4th - 6th grades), shelter tours, book groups, special projects, and more.
