Every shelter worker deserves a good get away. Here's a little peek into what our Pit Ed campers get to do when they come to Oakland to play with pit bulls. From June Camp: All work and no play! (Not)
1. Everyone gets to see bay area shelters from the inside out.
2. Environmental enrichment work: Flirt pole practice keeps everybody on their toes. Heather Hart, Interim Director of Operations, Baltimore Humane Society
3. Learning handling skills in Pit Ed class.
4. We stop to watch an Ambassadog meet his prospective family.
5. Helping out at a Shots Fair: Greeting clients and learning what life is like for pit bull owners in this town. Ed Fritz, Campaign Specialist, Best Friends Animal Society
6. Meeting local celeb Jonny Justice.
7. No visit is complete without a snuggle from a snoring Nelly.
8. Potty breaks for the dogs interrupt an afternoon of policy talk.
9. Entertaining Ambassadog Retha after hours
12. And finally, a video made during camp by Jessica Dolce in honor of her new buddy, Retha. Thank you Jessica! We had a great time and look forward to highlighting all the wonderful things you diehards will be doing for the pit bulls in your corners in upcoming months.
