Be Better PAWliday Camp
PAWliday Day Camps offer students in-shelter, hands-on programming during the school vacation breaks, in-service days or school holidays. Campers ages 6 through 10 years of age will have age-appropriate curriculum and learning objectives. Through crafts, games, and exercising our dogs, campers will be able to explore how we care for our animals, how to be safe around them and how to take care of their own pets at home. Each camp will have a specific lesson tailored to the holiday on which it is held.
Be Better stands for the some of the key components of being a loving and responsible pet owner:
B- Bath & Brush: Grooming keeps your pet healthy & clean.
E- Exams: All pets need yearly exams by a veterinarian in order to stay healthy!
T- Train: Training & enrichment for any kind of pet is important to keep their brains healthy, too.
T- Tags: Tags and microchips help pets find their way home if they are ever lost.
E- Eating (and Drinking): Access to nutritious food and water every day is the foundation of being a good pet parent.
R- Respect: Giving affection appropriately, and knowing your pet’s boundaries, is important for any human-animal bond.
