Read to Animals
Calling all readers! The shelter environment can be very scary and stressful for our animals. Between the new faces, smells, and noises, they could really use a break from all of the commotion. That’s where you come in!
Our Book Buddies program provides much needed quiet interaction for our dogs, giving them time to relax and enjoy a story (they love looking at the pictures)! Animals also make the best judgment-free audience to readers still mastering their skills. Readers of all levels are welcome!
Blankets to sit on and treats to hand out will be provided. All you need to bring is your reader and their favorite book! Our program is free with a donation (monetary or in-kind).
IMPORTANT: Before you can sign your child up to read to our animals, you must read and approve the Charleston Animal Society Release of Liability, Medical Consent, Photographic Image Release And Permission to Participate CLICK HERE.
