At Animal Humane Society, we do more than help dogs, cats, and critters — we also help animal lovers of all ages get closer to the animals in our care.
AHS hosts a variety of summer and day camps throughout the school year, including Shelter Vet Camp. These camps are designed for children and future leaders in animal welfare.
At Shelter Vet Camp, we foster a love for animal care, inspiring the next generation of veterinarians and vet techs. Students in grades 3-6 have the opportunity to practice skills used by shelter vet staff — like listening to an animal’s heart beat and lungs, or performing blood draws — getting an inside look at what vets do every single day.
Shelter Vet Camp is just one of the many opportunities young animal lovers have to get up close with the dogs, cats, and critters in our care. Learn more about other programs we offer to engage kids and families in our work to help animals in need.
