The Pet Barn at Camp Hi-Ho has found great homes for thousands of puppies and kittens since its inception. This is an activity at Camp where kids can cuddle up with puppies and kittens in a well-staffed environment. Campers can play with our animals during camp hours, or have a sleepover with a puppy or kitten during their session. We provide a cage and food if you decide to take home a cuddly creature for a night.
Our mission is to find good homes for these animals, so if you’re in the market for a new family member, please consider going this route!
You MUST call the Pet Barn to reserve your pet for a sleepover or for adoption. Thank you for understanding!
Please follow the instructions below for animal adoption (temporary and permanent adoptions):
1. Call Kathryn, our Pet Barn Director (502.220.4415 x 1) to make sure the animal you’d like is available. She will schedule you for your pet sleepover/adoption, coordinate the animal’s supplies, and will notify your camper’s counselor that he/she will go to the Pet Barn at dismissal.
2. Drive to Camp Hi-Ho (pets cannot ride the bus) to pick up your camper and the pet by 3:15pm. The pet barn is located at the end of the gravel drive in the small white barn at the back of the property.
3. Bring your camper and the pet back to Camp the next morning by 9:00am.
Adopting an animal for the night is free. Permanently adopting a puppy is usually $150, but subject to change depending on the type of puppy and the individual situation. Permanently adopting a kitten is $35.
