In the Purrs & Tales program children will have a chance to come to the shelter and read to our adoptable cats. This program is designed to create a stress free and non-judgmental environment for children to practice their reading. Not only are the children able to develop their reading skills and boost self-esteem, but also provide valuable socialization and love to the shelter cats.

The program will be offered throughout the school year and children must be signed up to attend. Children from the ages of 5-15 years old are allowed to come to the shelter to read books of their choice to the cats in one of the community cat rooms. Spots are limited so sign up early!
