Reading Program


Watts Project, Trendy Little Sweethearts, De La Doggies and LA Animal Services teamed up to bring a new program, Read 2 Paws to the South L.A. Animal Shelter and to schools around the L.A. area. We invite children to spend a couple of hours reading to shelter dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. The main purpose of this event is to teach children to have compassion toward these loving animals. Read 2 Paws is 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 want to thank 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.
