SPCA Offers Animal Camps During Winter Break

This Winter Break season, treat the young animal lover in your family to the SPCA’s fun and educational One Day Animal Camps!

On select days in December and January, your SPCA will hold fun and affordable one-day camps from 9 am to 3 pm. Campers will learn what makes dogs such great friends, about a cat’s amazing senses, how to help wildlife, how the SPCA helps pets in need find amazing families, and learn what it’s like to adopt their very own pet. Themes include Dog Days, Curious Cats, Wildlife Wonders, Barnyard Bonanza, and the debut of our new session — Awesome Adopters!

As part of our new Awesome Adopters camp, campers will go through the adoption process and “adopt” their very own plush toy! They will learn all about how to select the right pet for them, what you need to know about bringing your new pet home, and how to be the best pet parent they can be!

All learning is done through fun games, interactive hands-on activities, and of course – lots of one on one time with adoptable animals!

Camp is a unique mix of fun, exciting, and educational hands-on experiences. Animal Camp builds self-esteem, nurtures compassion, and is a lot of fun for children who love animals.

The SPCA for Monterey County is your nonprofit, independent, donor-supported humane society that has been serving the animals and people of Monterey County since 1905. The SPCA is not a chapter of any other agency and does not have a parent organization.  They shelter homeless, neglected and abused pets and livestock, and provide humane education and countless other services to the community. They are the local agency you call to investigate animal cruelty, rescue and rehabilitate injured wildlife, and aid domestic animals in distress. Online at www.SPCAmc.org.
