Paws & Claws Club

Summer Camp for 10-13 Year Olds

The Paws & Claws Club gives young students ages 10-13 years the opportunity to give their time and love to the homeless animals at the Humane Society of Indianapolis. Being a part of this club teaches young people about the important role IndyHumane plays in our community. It also gives students a bonding experience with animals who need love and attention and with others their age that have a similar interest in animals and their wellbeing.

During the PCC summer camp sessions, students work together to complete shelter tasks such as socializing dogs and cats. Special projects are incorporated to make this opportunity a great experience.


  • To give youth the opportunity to help companion animals in their community by spending their time assisting the staff at the Humane Society of Indianapolis.
  • To nurture a sense of compassion and respect for living beings through enriching activities and hands-on experiences that are rewarding for kids and animals alike!

Club Activities:

  • Kennel/Yard Cleaning
  • Laundry & Dishes
  • Quality Time w/Adoptable Dogs & Cats
  • Dog Training
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Group Bonding Activities
