Pet camp changes kids perspectives


Last week, two Green River students joined four Rock Springs students at the Red Desert Humane Society’s Pet Camp.

During the one-week camp, the group acted as volunteers. They kicked off the week with a tour of the shelter and went over how to fundraise for the cause. They also learned how to talk to animals and they met the animals they would be in charge of preparing for adoption. 

On Tuesday, rescue worker issues, including hoarding, overpopulation and euthanasia were discussed. The kids also met with Chezney Leisch, a dog agility trainer, to hear about target training.
