Enroll kids now in Kansas Humane Society’s Critter Camp, March 19-23
The Kansas Humane Society’s Spring Break Critter Camp, a humane educational event for kids ages 7 to 12, will be March 19-23.
The event allows campers to have fun while expanding their animal care knowledge, develop character, learn valuable life skills, make new friends and discover new interests. Children attending Critter Camp will learn how to properly care for and behave around dogs and cats by playing with adoptable animals; participate in educational animal-related games and activities; enjoy lessons augmented by guest speakers and educational videos; and much more. Each day’s activities follow a specific theme, helping campers better focus and learn.
Children can enroll in morning (8:30 a.m.-noon) or afternoon (1:30-5 p.m.) sessions. Fees are $30 a day, or $125 for the week, and include a Critter Camp T-shirt. All sessions are held at the Kansas Humane Society, 3313 N. Hillside.

Easter bunny? Choose chocolate
Bunny TNT has joined with two local candy-makers to help educate people about bunnies and to raise money for the rabbit rescue group.
Through April 7, Cero’s Candies, 1108 E. Douglas, will sell bunny pins with a chocolate bunny for $3.50, and Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates, 2132 N. Rock Road, Suite 100, will have special bunny candy for $2.50 and a two-piece box including bunny candy for $5.
Bunny TNT and the national Make Mine Chocolate campaign remind people that bunnies, social but often fragile creatures, do not make good pets for small children. If you’re looking for a bunny as an Easter gift for a child, they urge you to make it a stuffed or chocolate bunny.
