Reading Tails

Reading Tails

The Reading Tails program is back! This program includes a behind-the-scenes tour of the Shelter, and plenty of time for participating kids to read a bedtime story to a shelter pet of their choosing! Want to read to a dog, cat, rabbit, guinea pig, or even a mouse or a parakeet? Kids can pick the story, and pick the shelter pet they read to!


2/13/23 update: the schedule for March-May has been opened and is already filled! We will not be opening any additional dates, but you are welcome to check back to see if there have been any cancellations!
