Precious Paws Storytime

Serving grades one through eight, our Precious Paws Storytime Program allows children to visit our Adoption Centers along with their parent/guardian to read to our adoptable cats or dogs. This program is open year round to all children, with or without a learning disability, as well as children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger Syndrome.

This program is beneficial for both the children, by fostering confidence and reading skills, and the animals, by providing a soothing and rhythmic sound of a human voice which comforts them.
