Houston SPCA Winter Critter Camp Wrap-Up

Welcome to 2014 fellow animal lovers!

We hope you had a wonderful holiday with friends and family! As we start the new year, let’s take a look at all of the fun we had during the Houston SPCA’s Winter Critter Camp!

Campers from all over the Houston area came to the Houston SPCA to enjoy spending time with our adoptable animals, learn important lessons about keeping our animals safe and happy, hear from some fantastic guest speakers, and so much more.

Take a look at what our campers were able to do while spending their winter break at the Houston SPCA:

Winter Critter Camp General Activities

This year our campers did fun winter-themed arts and crafts, created toys and blankets for our shelter animals, enjoyed presentations from the Houston SPCA veterinarians, behavior specialists, foster care program, and client care, and were able to see our adoptable shelter pets each day!

Winter Critter Camp Save Spend Give

Every day our campers learned an important animal-related lesson. Our spend-save-give boxes helped show our campers how important it is to not only save money for the future but to give money to causes that they care about. We could not have made these without the generous donations of shoe boxes from our fans. Thank you!!

Our favorite part of the day was spending some quality time with our adoptable shelter animals. Our campers played with cats, dogs, and even spent some time with our adoptable farm animals.

Thank you to all of our guest speakers who were able to come and speak to our campers including the METRO Canine Police Department and animal assisted therapy group.

Keep on the lookout for our Spring Break Critter Camp and Summer Critter Camp!
