Does your child in grade 1-8 need extra reading practice or would he/she like to spend time helping socialize shelter cats by reading aloud to them? Our Reading to Cats program is designed to help students gain more confidence in their reading skills and to provide enrichment for the cats and kittens. The interaction also teaches kids the importance of empathy, animal welfare, and community service.

Each 60-minute reading session can accommodate up to 10 students, and one parent or guardian must accompany up to two students. Weekday sessions in April are great for home-schoolers. We’ll also be announcing summer sessions soon – stay tuned!

Students should bring a book to read and wear comfortable clothing – long pants and closed-toe shoes—as they will be sitting on the floor and interacting with the cats. The reading sessions are offered at no charge, but donations are always welcome.

Session Dates in August 2018 are the following:
Sunday August 12th, 11a-12p; Wednesday August 22nd, 1-2p; Thursday August 30th, 1-2p

All sessions take place at:
