Wags for Hope: Read to a New Dog Friend

Date: 
Sunday, February 8, 2015 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm
Improve your reading skills and make a new friend by reading aloud to a therapy pet! The Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) program improves children's reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a dog or cat. But not just any dog or cat. R.E.A.D. pets are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team, going to schools, libraries and many other settings as reading companions for children. This program is held every 4 weeks. Dec 14, Jan 11, Feb 8
