'Thanksgiving Camp' at Valley Animal Center

The Valley Animal Center is proud to present three exciting, fun days of “Thanksgiving Camp” for children ages 5-17! School will be out of session, and “Thanksgiving Camp” is the perfect daytime activity for families who are looking for a safe, fun and educational environment for their children over the break. Each of our day camps will have fun hands-on activities and special guests.

Future Veterinarian Day: November 24, 2014

Join Valley Animal Center for a fun look at animal health care! Campers will be able to shadow our veterinary staff in our Spay and Neuter Clinic and see first-hand what goes into keeping pets healthy.

Service Animals Day: November 25, 2014

This camp will feature exciting guest demonstrators with their dogs such as: The Fresno Police Department K9 Unit, Therapy Dogs International, Pets 4 Vets, and etc.

Animal Lovers Day: November 26, 2014

Campers will learn about being responsible pet owners, and will participate in fun animal activities such as making pet treats, decorating doggie bandanas, and much more! They will also get a behind the scenes look at the day to day operations of running an animal shelter.

The camps are open to children between the ages of 5 and 17 and are from 9 AM – 4 PM. In addition to the various exciting projects and interactive activities, campers will also receive a camp T-shirt with their registration, which was generously sponsored by A-Mark T-shirts. Registration fees are $45 per child, per camp or $100 per camper for all three camps. Current Valley Animal Center volunteers will receive a reduced rate of $40 and $90 respectively. Extended care is also available for an additional fee of $15 per child, per camp.

For more information or to register online, visit or contact Shannon Escobedo, Volunteer Manager at 559-233-8690.
