Shreveport-Bossier Kids Can Learn to Care for Pets

Parents will have a chance to make sure their children are experts at taking care of the pets. Thanks to a camp being offered by Bossier Parish Community College, youngsters will gain valueable knowledge in caring for pets.

It’s called the Pet Education Project, or PEP. It’s exactly what parents have been dreaming of.


Campers get to have fun with furry guests each day. The camp lasts a week and children will be taught how to properly care for and love the animal assigned to them.

For those who don’t know, the five components of care are food, water, shelter, care and love. And each subject will be discussed.

Live animals will be brought in each day for a short time – mostly, hospitality-trained dogs. This program is not recommended for children who are allergic to animals.

The camp will be divided into two camps for different age groups: 5 to 7 and 8 to 11. The younger camp will be held from 8 until 11 am, July 23rd through 27th.

The older children will attend camp from 8 until 11 am July 30th through August 3rd.

The camps are being hosted by Pet Education Project. You find out more on their website at

For more information, or to register, call BPCC’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education Department at (318) 678-6015.
