Read 2 Paws

Read-2-Paws is a reading program created to teach children how to be compassionate towards animals by treating them with love and respect. We invite children and their family to spend a couple of hours reading to shelter dogs, cats, bunnies, and even guinea pigs. Children are taught how to be responsible pet owners by learning the importance of spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchipping through this program. Read 2 Paws is also a therapeutic experience as it gives shelter and rescue animals a break from their sometimes stressful environment and brings smiles to children’s faces while putting their reading skills to practice. We are grateful for the parents that allow their children to attend, for it is the teachings of today that will mold the rescuers and animal advocates of tomorrow.
