Tales for Tails Reading Enhancement Program

Feb 02, 2016

The Tales for Tails Reading Program has been designed to provide an opportunity for kids aged 5 – 16 to improve their reading while bettering the lives of our shelter pets. 

Shelter animals will love having your child’s companionship! The presence of a calm child helps the animals learn that children are friends, not foes. Most animals enjoy the rhythm of the children reading, while the fearful animals become calmer, more trusting, and more social.

Check out full guidelines and more information on the Tales for Tails Reading Program.

We hope your child enjoys their experience reading to our animals!
