Our reading enrichment program for children ages 5 to 12 makes reading fun, boosts confidence and encourages respectful, humane treatment for all animals. It offers children the opportunity to read animal related short stories of their choice to dogs in our Companion Animal Program. Not only does this make reading fun, it also builds a child’s confidence in reading aloud.

The available books will help children realize that animals experience a range of emotions similar to their own and that they have basic needs much like those of humans. This, in turn, encourages them to appreciate the importance of treating all animals, nonhuman and human, with respect and kindness.

Check our schedule for a chance to read to a curious canine.
