SPCA of Texas' Spring Break Camp 2015:
 Registration Open Tomorrow



WHAT: Craving some creative activities for your little critters this spring break? Bring your two-legged family members to the SPCA of Texas, where they have the opportunity to play with animals in need of love, make arts and crafts and talk about responsible pet ownership.

Campers will learn the basics of animal care from our professional staff, hear about how our rescue team works to stop animal cruelty, have the opportunity to pet and play with our shelter animals and discuss important values such as kindness and love. They’ll find out what they can do to help pets in their own neighborhoods. This year’s camp will also give campers the opportunity to read to our adoptable animals and learn the basics of fostering a pet at the SPCA of Texas. Best of all, they’ll meet new friends both two-legged and four-legged!

Critter Camp takes place during spring break the week of March 9-11at both the SPCA of Texas’ state-of-the-art Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas and the SPCA of Texas' picturesque Russell H. Perry Animal Care Center in McKinney, and is offered to kids between the ages of 8-11 years of age.

SPCA of Texas Voices

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
