Volunteer Karen Gallagher holds a baby goat for camper Jeremy Murbach and his mother, Kaili Murbach, at the petting zoo at Camp Paws-abilities this week at the Assistance Dogs of Hawaii campus in Makawao. The three-day camp, which ended Thursday, was put on for the second year in a row by the nonprofit Assistance Dogs of Hawaii for children with disabilities. There was a petting zoo, arts and crafts activities, a doggy day spa and scavenger hunts on wheelchair accessible trails. The campers were paired with a service dog in training during the three days. The camp was free for children, said Sharon Dahlquist, assistant director of Assistance Dogs of Hawaii.
