Your dog will definitely be happy to see you when you get home from school. Schedule time before homework for a little extra attention at the end of a long day -- a game of fetch or tug, a good brushing, or an afternoon walk. Don't forget extra attention for kitty and small animals, too. They are adjusting to the schedule change and will be happy to welcome you home.
SPEAK FOR THOSE WHO CAN'T

PLEASE CALL ANIMAL CONTROL,

Lots of families walk their dogs when they walk their children to school. It's a good way for the family dog to get exercise and enjoy varied surroundings. Plus, it's good for kids, too -- saying good-bye to poochie at the school's front door is a pleasant way to start the day. However, many schools have "No dogs on school property" rules and some students may be frightened by your friendly Fido. Be considerate. Know and follow the rules. And, be respectful of others feelings.

Caring Kids Campers Met Interesting People, Socialized Animals, and Created Masterpieces During the Summer
|Pinot and Miso visit All About Animals|
|Art and Animals campers use Grisaille technique|
to paint pictures of shelter cats.
|Career Exploration campers |
are introduced to Horace, Dr. Costanzo's bird
|Dr. Hodgson and campers brainstorm |
possible diagnosis during Animal Advocates camp.
Campers attending HRA's four weeks of Caring Kids summer camps explored animal-centered careers, met a number of animals -- including snakes, guinea pigs, rabbits, amphibians, cats, and dogs, plus they participated in a number of workshops strategizing ways to advocate for those who can't speak for themselves and created and exhibited masterful animal art. While everyone loved cuddling with kittens and training dogs, we are certain that our animal-loving campers learned something that they will use to make the world a better place for all animals.
