This is a new volunteer opportunity just for your young dog lover! Help get our shelter dogs’ tails wagging by reading to them! This is a positive experience that helps create bonds and builds the dog’s confidence which will help them get adopted. This also gives children a chance to practice their reading skills in front of a non-judgmental (and cute) crowd. Ages 6-17 are invited to learn how to safely interact with dogs and read to our adoptable pups!

Please bring your favorite book to read to our dogs!

*Parents are welcome to stay and read with their child for $7 per parent.

*Space is limited to 20 people and is first come-first served. Please pre-register here to secure your spot, as drop ins the day of cannot be guaranteed a space.

Fee: $15 per child
