-A A +A

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter is hosting a special Winter Critter Camp that offers children ages 10-13 a fun, hands-on experience with animals in a shelter environment.
The two-day intensive camp runs from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 30 and 31 at the shelter, 100 Caja del Rio Road.
Similar to the Summer Critter Camp, teams of children will learn the care and handling of a variety of animals, with a focus on behavior, veterinary care and grooming.
The camp offers interaction with shelter staff and companion animals. Short talks about animal sheltering and care will be punctuated with fun, interactive games, workbooks and hands-on projects.
Participants will finish the camp with a greater appreciation of companion animals and return home with lots of memories and photos to share with family and friends.
The camp, which costs $100, is limited to 10 participants.
