Caring for animals is very important, and at shelter camps in the summer, kids learn how to do just that! At a program called "Backyard Buddies" in Seattle, Washington, kids learn how to help wild life. They collect branches and twigs for bird nests, and they collect nuts and food for them to eat. There is a chain of programs across the country called "PAWS" where kids learn how to handle animals with care. They learn how to be gentle with small mammals so they don't get scared. There are plenty of animal shelter camps across the US, and they're all good places to learn how to be kind and caring to animals.
