Read & Relax
This program is for children ages 5-17 to read out loud to the animals. Participants can choose to read to cats, dogs, or small animals in a quiet setting. Children must be under the direct supervision of a parent or guardian. Bean bag chairs and a selection of books are provided; however, children can also bring in a book of their choosing. The goal of this program is to socialize animals, reduce their anxiety, and help children develop their animal care and reading skills.
