An exclusive partnership with the Broward County Libraries and the School Board of Broward County, the Wags & Tales program provides a non-judgmental audience for students having trouble with reading. Participants learn how to be safe around animals as well as what a loving friend, a dog, can be as they improve their reading skills.
