Announcement Regarding Animal Education Day Camp 2016

There are several exciting changes and improvements in progress at DuPage County Animal Care and Control!

  • We will be hiring our new Humane Education and Special Events Coordinator in April 2016.
  • A search is in progress now for our new Administrator Veterinarian.
  • A major infrastructure upgrade is in progress at our facility, due to be completed in May (we have been in a temporary facility since January.)
  • As part of our efforts to make DCACC a model for other open admission shelters, we continue to review and evaluate existing Animal Control policies, procedures, programs and services to ensure they are as effective, efficient, and innovative as possible. 

With all the noted changes and improvements we felt it is best, FOR SUMMER 2016 ONLY, to alter our summer programs. 

DCACC will not offer its traditional Animal Education Day Camp (Summer Camp) this summer.   We will take this time to orient our new Humane Education and Special Events Coordinator, and work with her to evaluate and enhance our humane education program and service offerings. 

However, DCACC will offer to host a variety of ancillary humane education programs and activities.  Be sure to check this page for updates beginning in May 2016.

Additionally, look for DCACC to participate as a speaker/presenter at other local summer camps and off-site adoption/outreach events around DuPage County.  These too will be posted this page.

We thank you for your patience and support during this time of renewal and improvement.  We look forward to greeting you at our new summer camp in 2017.
