Woods Humane Society presents its summer "Critter Camp" for kids ages 8 to 12 who love animals. Throughout the weeklong camps, kids train with the same dog using positive reinforcement to communicate. Campers go on educational fieldtrips every week past destinations have included the Natural History Museum in Morro Bay and the Avila Barn. Campers also receive visits from wildlife specialists and the "horse whisperer." Judy Pierson, who acts as the shelter's director, said that the program has been very successful, not only for educating the people who participate, but also at making the dogs more relaxed and easier to adopt. In fact, many of the kids end up adopting "their" dogs after graduating. The program runs through August at Woods Humane Society's new location west of San Luis Obispo at Kansas Avenue off Hwy. 1. Pre-registration is required. For more info: 543-9316. …

During the month of June, Kevin Main Jewelry (KMJ) raised $300 for Hospice of SLO County, by donating all the proceeds from watch batteries sold. Given the success of its first watch-battery fund-raiser, it decided to try again in July, with the money raised benefiting Woods Humane Society. KMJ will continue with its fund-raisers and choose a new nonprofit every month. In August, CASA, a program that supports young people caught in the judicial system, will be the recipient of the gift. To help with the fund-raiser, just exchange your old battery for a new one at Kevin Main's downtown shop at 1920 Broad in SLO. For more info, stop by or call 547-0662. ?
