Animal Harbor, in partnership with the Franklin County Library and Wendy’s, is proud to announce a new reading program in our community. We will launch Paws to Read on March 2, 2018, in collaboration with Read Across America Day.
It might be impossible for any one person to adopt every pet in need of a good home, but our youngest Harbor Helpers can do the next best thing.
Children ages 2-18 who are able to read at any level are invited to the shelter to read to our adoptable cats and dogs in our adoption rooms. The program will help children improve their reading skills, help socialize our adoptable pets, and develop stronger human-animal bonds for both animals and people.
This program is simple. Visit the Franklin County Library and choose your book. The library will extend a certificate on behalf of Wendy’s.
Come to the shelter and read…Our adoptable cats and dogs are great listeners!
Return your book to the library, once returned the certificate will be stamped.
Collect four stamps and then enjoy a frosty treat from Wendy’s.
Starting March 3rd the Paws to Read program will be open every Saturday from 2-4pm.
Should you have a large group or club interested in participating, please call the shelter directly to set up an alternate time at 962-4472. See you at the Harbor!
