Camp I Care is the four-day training session required to enter Save-A-Pet’s Kids Care volunteer program. Camp includes presentations from each shelter department including Kennel, Cat Room, Animal Health, Adoptions and Intake. There is also a visit from a Lake County Animal Control officer, interaction with the cats, dog walking and more. A Kids Care Volunteer t–shirt is provided for each volunteer. Camp I Care is for students ages 11 and older who eill enter grades 6, 7 or 8 in the fall. Applications for Camp I Care are available around April 1 and require a $75 donation. Dates of the camp are specified on the application but are usually in June. There is one session per summer with limited enrollment. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

During the year, six to eight (of the current total of 50) Kids Care volunteers are called upon each Saturday to walk dogs with adult supervision. They utilize Save-A-Pet’s nine play areas in back where kids and dogs interact. This helps to socialize and exercise the shelter dogs. Kids also have the opportunity to spend time in the cat room for play and socialization.
