Companion Animal Foundation

Summer Camp Counselor

July 2019 • Arcata, CA

What I liked

For The Love of Animals is a summer camp for children that love animals and aspire work with them in their future. This camp teaches children how to interact with animals, how to take care of them, nutrition, behavior, emergency preparedness, veterinarian experience, and more. I loved being a camp counselor for these children and their growing minds. Camp features included caring for kittens, puppies, tortoises, chickens, and bunnies. Such an amazing experience. After working for this camp I aquired a position working at the Companion Animal Foundation thrift stores which help raise funds for animals that need care while waiting to be adopted. The foundation also provides members in the community with vouchers to have animals spayed or nurtured.

What I wish was different

I love my job, however, I still aim to find more work with animals for even more experience.


This is a nonprofit organization and so the pay is not great. But if you love animals and support the cause of this organization, than you feel rewards that are beyond the money you make.
