Paws to Read

A program for children in grades 1-8, to read aloud to adoptable animals at our shelter. In the past this program has only been offered through schools, but we are now offering it to individuals. Children are able to build on literacy skills with a non-judgmental audience, as well as provide valuable socialization to our shelter animals

  • $10 to reserve a session (non-refundable); space is limited and fees help to provide for the care of the animals
