Humane Society of NWPA holds its first ‘Camp Rescue’ event for kids and teens

Local News

A group of young animal lovers is wrapping up three days of training in a first of its kind summer camp.

About 80 kids between seven and fourteen have been busy at Camp Rescue, put on by the Humane Society of Northwest Pennsylvania.  the camp is designed to teach the kids the basic skills needed to rescue rehabilitate and rehome animals.

Director of the Humane Society of NWPA, Nicole Bawol, says, “There’s a lot of blood, sweat and tears that goes into rescuing and rehabilitating them so we’re hoping to show them and educate them about that.”

The Humane Society tells us that this year’s three-day camp was so successful that they will be offering a full week of camp in 2019.
