Caring Kids Special Winter Events

In tandem with D.C. Public Schools February mid-winter break, the Humane Rescue Alliance is offering two special days, specifically for students who care about animals. These day- long events will provide opportunities for middle and high school students to spend a day at HRA participating in activities designed especially for them. 

HRA Day provides middle school students with an opportunity to learn about the role of the shelter in the community and how students can help HRA help the animals. Sixth, seventh, and eighth graders will meet shelter alumni, participate in a mini-dog training exercise, and tour the shelter. In addition, participants will explore ways that they can help HRA help the animals by fund-raising, collecting needed items from the HRA wish list, and creating awareness events.

We are excited to invite high school students to participate in our second annual Veterinary Medicine Exploration Day. Area veterinarians and veterinary technicians will discuss their jobs working in general veterinary medicine, emergency medicine, and shelter medicine. Additionally, the  experts will address topics such as preparing for college, applying to veterinary school, and the many career paths that someone with a veterinary degree may take. Bring your questions, concerns, and enthusiasm for exploring an exciting (and competitive) career in veterinary medicine.

Spring Break Caring Kids Camp:
Grades 5, 6, and 7

April 13-17, 2020
10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Spring Break Caring Kids Camp is an educational, informative, and fun week that introduces fifth, sixth, and seventh graders to animals awaiting adoption, HRA alumni, and other animal visitors – some with fur, others with scales, feathers, or shells. HRA’s constantly changing population makes it impossible to gauge who will be in the shelter at any given time, but a slate of interesting animal guests are lined up to visit throughout the week.

Campers will make toys for shelter animals, promote adoptions, and create plans to help HRA help the animals long after camp ends. The week is designed for kids who care about animals and are eager to make the world a better for them.
