Pet Cadets Summer Camp 2017

Pet Cadets Summer Camp 2017

The Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County will host four sessions of half-day Pet Cadets Summer Camp this June and July.

The camp sessions, each lasting five days, are open to children aged 7 through 12 and will focus heavily on education about volunteerism, responsible pet ownership, dog bite prevention, and companion animal care. Kids will work on crafts, including making enrichment toys and games for the dogs and cats. Camp counselors will also work with kids throughout the week to get fun hands-on time and activities with the dogs and cats.

The cost to participate in the camp is $200 per weeklong session and includes a t-shirt and daily snack and beverage. Pet Cadets Summer Camp will take place at the Humane Society’s facility located at 935 Farm Road in Shelby Farms. Pet Cadets dates are as follows:

    My son is allergic to cats, but not dogs. Would he be able to participate?

      Hi Katie! It depends on the severity of the allergy. Cats have been almost everywhere in our building, so dander is unavoidable. However, if it is a minor allergy, we can accommodate that by just keeping your son away from the cat room. I hope that helps!
