Do you know a young animal advocate?

Humane Animal Rescue is proud to offer Camp Rescue at both our wildlife center and East End shelter locations! Camps serve to educate children about the wild animals that surround us, as well as the companion animals living in our homes, in an engaging and fun way! We believe it is our responsibility to teach younger generations about the habits and habitats of the animals who call Pennsylvania home, whether the be domestic or wild. Children attending Camp at our Wildlife Center will have the opportunity to learn about the science behind wildlife rehabilitation and meet some of our live educational animal ambassadors, and kids at our shelter’s camp will expand their knowledge of pet care and the challenges that shelter animals face.
