NHS Pet of the Week, Summer Camp Registration

King is an adorable two-year-old large breed mix. In the words of NHS staff, “he is a ball of squishy love!” King is a gentle and sweet boy who also loves his playtime! He gets along great with all types of people and other pups and would make a great companion to anyone out there. If you are interested in adding King to your home, contact NHS by emailing adopt@nshumane.org.

NHS Summer Camp Registration Open

If you are a parent of an animal lover who will find themselves in the throes of four-legged deprivation this summer, Northshore Humane Society has come to your rescue!

We invite children ages 8 – 15 to spend a week celebrating all animals as we engage in fun interactive games and activities, meet animal experts and ambassadors and put our compassion into action through service projects that benefit homeless animals. Children will be given an opportunity to interact with the rescued dogs and cats at our rescue. Our camp programs foster a sense of responsibility and respect for animals through inquiry and experienced-based learning.    Visit online:  northshorehumane.org

This year’s summer camps will bring new and exciting activities to campers each week! Activities will include helping the rescued pets here at our facility as well as learning the importance of pet care and advocacy. A variety of animal – related guest speakers attend each week including St. Tammany Parish Canine Unit, Love on a Leash, animal control officers, veterinarians and many more!
