For Kids



Children of all ages are welcome to participate!


Each week a shelter pet will accept letters from children sent via email on Monday-Wednesday. The Shelter Pet will then write back to their Pen Pal by Friday. Letters received after Wednesday will be returned the following week.

Week of July 20th: Meet Pan Pal Clyde

Clyde is my name and exploring is my game! I am a 5 yr old, male pitbull mix. I love to go on walks and scout the great outdoors for new smells. Do you like being outside? Have you been out on hikes this year? If so, where have you gone? The outdoors is a wonderful place where you can learn about your environment. Once I have explored until my heart is content, I enjoy being inside hanging out with family. Please write to me if you have a chance and share some of your summer adventures in your letter to me.

It is with great disappointment that we will not be hosting our 2020 Compassion Camp. This decision was made with careful consideration of the needs of the campers, employees and the animals in our care.


We still want to encourage children to be kind to animals and notify adults if they see an animal in need. We will be developing online content and sharing throughout the summer via our email list and Facebook. We hope you will stay in touch!

For those that have registered for our camp program please check your email in regards to information about refunds.

Any questions contact Shannon Camara, Camp Director
