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 May 26th: Meet Pan Pal Princess Peaches

Hi, my name is Peaches. However, the staff here love to call me Princess Peaches. I am a 3 year old, female Pitbull mix. When I first came to the shelter I did not have much fur due to having severe food allergies. Staff have gotten my allergies under control and my fur is coming back in beautifully. Do you have allergies to anything? I LOVE to be with the people here. I often try climbing in their laps and I’m always giving them kisses! Do you like to cuddle with your family? I hope you can write to me so I can sit in the staffs lap as they read me your letter.

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
