Pet Helpers - For Kids

Furry Tales Reading Program

It's Story Time!

Does your child struggle to read or put up a fight?  We may have a way to make reading more fun for your child!  Do they like cats?  Maybe dogs?  Bring in your favorite books and come read to our animals!  Not only will it help your child develop reading skills and a love of reading, but it will also benefit the animals and help increase their socialization skills. 

Our Furry Tales Reading Program will meet on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays between 2:00-4:00pm.  During this time, children will choose a spot in Catland and start reading to their furry friends.  The last few minutes of each session will include playtime with the animals.  

 The Furry Tales Reading Program is open to children of all ages. We ask for a $10.00 tax-deductible donation for each Furry Tales visit. Each child will receive a “library card” as a memento that they will present each session. After 10 visits your child will receive a commemorative adoptable pet stuffed animal and book.
