This Animal Shelter Is Hosting A Camp During School Vacay & It Sounds Pawesome
With Winter recess almost upon us (and Spring vacay week not far behind!), there’s something happening in Newport County that the kiddo in your life who loves animals would def want to be part of. I’m talking about Potter League For Animals’ Camp Happy Tails.
Famous for the incredible work they do rescuing and re-homing abandoned cats, dogs, rabbits, and yes, even the occasional ferret or hedgehog (not to mention their veterinary wellness and microchipping clinics, training classes , the Pet Food Pantry for those in need of assistance, and so much more), Potter League is opening their doors during February and April school vacation weeks to kids grades 3 thru 6. (Looking forward, they usually host several sessions during the summer as well…because it’ll be here before ya know it!)
There will be a variety of daily activities - games, crafts, and supervised interaction time with some of the shelter’s residents - centered around this year’s theme, Animal Heroes, and age appropriate learning about how PL helps the homeless animals in their care. A fun-tastic look behind the scenes at PL that’s meant to support and further encourage respectful and compassionate attitudes and behaviors towards animals.
Spots are booking up fast, though, so don’t drag your tail! For additional info about sign up, rates, and Extended Day playtime, click here
