Come enjoy a reading by a local author! They love sharing their stories with you, and you can hear it straight from the source!

After the reading, bring your own favorite book to share with our dogs and cats, they love to hear stories too!

Reading to shelter animals helps them relax, and become more comfortable with new people. By reading your stories to our dogs and cats, you help them become more adoptable! Thank you!

Please accompany your children to the reading, we will not allow unattended children to read to our animals.
