On the first day of summer vacation, my daughter got to go with her BFF to get a kitten. They spent the next 24 hours cuddling the kitten. Like full-on abominable snowman cuddling. Those two LOVE kitties and puppies.

If you have a kiddo who is also into helping animals, check out Critter Camp at WHS.

Parents, are you looking for summer activities for your kids? Critter Camp is a week-long camp held here at Warrick Humane Society July 18 - July 22 focusing on pet education, animal interaction and arts and crafts for kids ages 6-12. The cost is $60 and you can order an exclusive Critter Camp t-shirt for an additional $15.

Email volunteerwarrick@gmail.com for more information and to register. Registration is limited to 8 volunteers, so don't delay!

And since we can't go adopt new cats all the time, I also let her go in once in a while and "socialize" the cats and kittens.If you have an older kid, you can sign them up to be a junior volunteer.


We are excited to offer our Junior Volunteer program this summer for kids ages 13-15! The program will be held every Sunday from 12PM - 2PM beginning June 12th and ending July 31st. The cost for the Junior Volunteer program is $25 and includes an exclusive Junior Volunteer t-shirt. Parents do not have to stay with the kids for the program.

Newburgh Baby’s Array of Facial Expressions Will Crack You Up!

Whenever I see little Miss Alanah Meier's photos come up in my Facebook newsfeed, I can't help but smile. Her array of facial expressions is quite extensive, to say the least. Her mom Kim told me that post colic phase, she's the happiest baby ever.

I think my favorite part of her expressions are her eyes and eyebrows. She looks at you like, "Seriously, what are you doing?" Work it, girl! At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if she showed up meme or a baby model sometime soon.
