Cape Cod Children’s Museum: Summer Program for Homeless Animals!

The MSPCA Cape Cod has partnered with the Cape Cod Children’s Museum for our annual summer program. We bring in our adoptables to socialize (cuddle!) with families and teach our young animal advocates about animals. Be sure to check out pictures from our ongoing program at the Museum clicking here. Our program, spearheaded by volunteer extraordinaire Susan Larrabee, runs every Tuesday from 11:00am to 12:00pm through the summer. Bring the whole family and join us!

“Little Bookworms” Story Time

The “Little Bookworms” story time will provide an age appropriate activity that fosters a sense of responsibility and compassion in our youngest visitors, from those in strollers to those in preschool.  We invite our community’s youngest animal lovers to join us with their adult guardians for a story time at the Centerville Public Library every week/month.  During these half hour sessions, an animal-friendly short story will be read, and we will bring an adoptable pet into the room to visit.  Books include fiction, non-fiction and poetry.  Many have been awarded the Henry Bergh Children’s Book Award, which honors books that promote the humane ethic of compassion and respect for all living things.
