CALLING ALL KIDS!!! Rescue Readers is open to children 3-18 years-of-age. Bring your own book or borrow one of ours – the animals won’t care. Spend the hour reading to the shelter dogs and cats, helping them feel calm and providing human interaction that benefits them while at the shelter. And if you like, draw or color a picture to hang on a kennel or animal room to decorate it up and make the animals feel extra special!
