Join us for Winter Critter Camp!

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter is hosting a two-day Winter Camp that offers children ages 10-13 a hands-on experience with animals in a shelter environment.

The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan 3-4 at the shelter, 100 Caja del Rio Road.

Similar to 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. Short talks about animal sheltering and care will be punctuated with interactive games, workbooks and hands-on projects.

The camp, which costs $100, is limited to 10 participants. To register or for more information, call Devin White at 505-983-4309 ext. 128 or email
