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.
