Pages With Pets

Pages With Pets is a program in partnership with area libraries to bring children to the shelter to read during the summer. Each week has a different animal theme and features an opportunity to learn about what it’s like to have that type of animal as a pet followed by the chance to read to those animals in residence at the shelter.
 
July 7: Meet The Kitties
July 14: Meet The Bunnies
July 21: Meet The Guinea Pigs
July 28: Meet The Reading Therapy Dogs
 
The program is open to children 5+ and is free to attend, though we do encourage children to bring a donation item for our animals as a way of being a “helper” to them.  Space is limited to 30 children with their parents and is first come-first served.  The shelter opens to the public when the program ends at noon.
