January 2023 Camper of the MonthKiwi
Meet Princess Kiwi, or PK as we so lovingly call her. She is the sweetest one-year-old lab and loves to give hugs to all her favorite workers. She was recently adopted from Rescue One through our other location, and we couldn’t be happier that she found her FURever home!
August 2022 Camper of the MonthMacchiato
Macchiato is the sweetest little chihuahua schnauzer mix. He’s almost one year old and has been coming to camp since he was only 4 months, so we got to watch him grow! You can count on him to always have his little lamb toy and red blanket to snuggle up with at camp.
July 2022 Camper of the MonthNova
Nova is a two-year-old Great Pyrenees mix that loves Camp so much that she visits almost every weekend. As a rescue, it does take her a minute to warm up to you, but once she does, be ready for the best pets, plays, and bear hugs a dog has to offer!
June 2022 Camper of the MonthBailey

May 2022 Camper of the MonthReverend
Reverend is a 12-year-old German Shepherd mix. He is very shy at first but once he warms up to you he will love you forever.

March 2021 Camper of the MonthWalley
Wally is the sweetest Terrier mix ever! He is not quite one year old yet so he has a lot of puppy energy. Camp is a perfect outlet for him to socialize and get exercise.
He is always so excited to visit Camp; he gets whole-body wiggles each morning he sees the Camp Counselors!
You can find him playing with his best furiends Lily & Bodie in Play Yard 1.
We love Wally's facial expressions! While he is lively in the play yard, he also enjoys sitting on your lap and cuddling!
February 2021 Camper of the MonthTeddy Bear
We have major heart eyes for Teddy Bear! He is a fourteen year old Poodle who has more energy than some of our much younger Campers! Teddy is as sweet as the come; he brings his favorite stuffed monkey toy to Camp each time he visits. He pawsitively loves when we use his monkey during a Play Pals enrichment session - he goes bananas for it! The Camp Counselors enjoy that he is equally playful and snuggly in the yards. How can you not snuggle that cute face?! Congratulations, Teddy Bear, we ♥ you!

November 2020 Camper of the MonthMurphy
November is the month to be extra thankful and that is how we feel about Murphy! He started his Camp Bow Wow journey at our West location in 2017.

August 2020 Camper of the MonthPedro
August is Pedro's barkday month so we couldn't have picked a better time to celebrate him! Pedro is a one-year-old (as of August 11th) Maltipoo who is the life of the party! This zippy boy always has tons of energy and is ready to P L A Y! He loves to run around and romp with his furiends. Pedro gets along with every pup in the play yard but especially loves playing with Will.I.Am and Scooter. If you can spot him zipping around on the Camper Cams, he usually is in Tea Cup or Play Yard 1. Pedro's mom affectionately calls him "Pedro The Wonder Dog!" and we know why. Weighing at almost 5 pounds, he is the most social tea cup pup you'll ever meet and has a bow tie for every occasion! Congratulations, Pedro! We can't wait to celebrate your barkday with you too!
July 2020 Camper of the MonthSpock and Missy
These two sweet pups are long time Campers from East and West! Spock and Missy are Chihuahua mixes with great personalities. All of us know when they arrive at Camp as Missy's favorite thing to do is bark to greet all her friends bright and early; She gets so excited for Camp! Spock loves attention from the Camp Counselors, especially scratches behind his ears! He likes to hop up on the ramp to survey the play yard. One of our favorite things to do is read their bedtime stories - they each have their own PJs that we put on and they usually fall asleep during the story from how relaxed they are! While they are starting a new adventure in Arizona, we are so thankful to have had them as part of our Pack! They will be greatly missed and we sent them on their way with lots of love and snuggles. It's never goodbye, it's bark ya later!

He loves to chill on the play equipment and survey the yard while all the dogs run around him. Cy is a super sweet pup when he gets groomed by Delani - we think he thinks he's getting a massage the whole time! Congratulations Cy, we will be sure to give you extra lovins' this month (and every month)!?

You can find him playing with his best furiend Nova in play yards 1 & 2. He also has the best smile! He does love his lunch time nap as that gives him more energy for afternoon play! It's fun to cuddle with Briggs when he is sleepy ? We love you, Briggs!
