Read to Homeless Dogs

Once a month we partner with a local literary specialist The Reading Gal for Reading with Rescues! Participants in this special program get a full tour of our facility and have the kennels all to themselves for a 1-on-1 reading session with our dogs.

Reading with Rescues is a wonderful opportunity for our community to engage with our animals, gives kids a chance to sharpen their reading skills in front of a nonjudgemental audience, and provides much-needed one-on-one time with our pups (you won’t believe how much it calms them!).

All ages welcome, but participants over the age of 5 must be vaccinated for COVID-19.
