The Furry Tales Program is a weekly literacy tutoring program that helps children ages 5-10 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 practice their reading skills with tutors in a fun and non-judgemental atmosphere while giving our animals the chance to get exercise and to socialize. 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. This provides a safe and positive interaction for the animal.
This is a FREE program for the community. Parents are welcome to stay with their child throughout the program, but are not required to. There are tutors and staff who will attend to your child during the program.
This program is for humans only—please leave your great pets at home!
