Read to the Animals

Reading is better with animals!

Come read to our shelter pets – we know they’ll love to read along with you!

If you’ve been struggling with a child who just doesn’t want to read, incentivize them by coming to our shelter where they’ll meet some furry new friends.

The judgment-free attitudes of the shelter pets motivate kids to want to practice reading. This gives them more confidence and ultimately helps them become better readers. In turn, the quiet one-on-one attention of the readers gives shelter dogs, cats, and rabbits the human companionship they desire.

Our read to the animals program is for everyone! Whether you come individually or as a group, all we ask is that you schedule your time with us in advance.
