Accompanied by a parent or guardian, children ages 6-10 years old may read aloud to an adoring (and adoptable!) canine, feline, or even rabbit audience in this fun family event.  While your child practices reading, you’ll also be providing valuable social time to our animals awaiting new homes.

We’ll kick off this FREE program Sunday September 13, thereafter to be held on the first Sunday of the month.  Advance registration is required, and space is very limited, so register your child today by clicking here.
