Virtual Paws and Paperbacks

Tuesday, December 8, 2020
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM


Paws and Paperbacks helps children to develop compassionate relationships with animals by providing an opportunity for both kids and animals to spend time together in a calm and respectful environment. 



Children ages 6-11 years old can practice their reading skills in a fun and non-judgmental atmosphere while giving our ambassador animals the chance to get socialization. The focus of the interaction is on reading rather than the animal, which teaches children how to be respectful of an animal’s space and body and provides a safe, positive interaction for the animal. This program takes place virtually over Zoom.

Cost:$10.00 per child
