San Diego Humane Society offers new youth programs for spring

SAN DIEGO — San Diego Humane Society is launching two new youth programs just in time for Spring Break! Parents and their children can choose between Camp in a Box, which offers engaging projects that teach kids about animals from home, and the Critter Kids Club, a virtual club that meets weekly to give kids a fun way to make friends, play games and learn!
