SPCA camp gives kids lessons in loving animals

Teens from throughout the Tampa Bay area explored their dream jobs this summer in the SPCA Tampa Bay’s Animal-Loving Professions summer camp.

Students ages 12 to 15 have spent several weeks at the Largo campus for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' learning animal-training skills from local professionals.

Veterinarians, zookeepers, marine biologists, search-and-rescue handlers, cruelty investigators, pet photographers and others showed students the basic skills they use every day on the job while also giving insight into their professions.
