The Moultrie News recently featured a joint venture between Charleston Animal Society and Charleston County Library– that is using pets, to help promote reading with kids. Here is an excerpt from the article:
Charleston County Public Library (CCPL) received a $3,500 grant to encourage reading and hold events to raise awareness of animal welfare issues and welfare-related organizations in the Lowcountry.
The project focuses on the book “No Shelter Here: Making the World a Kinder Place for Dogs” by animal advocate Rob Laidlaw. A biologist, Laidlaw’s book explores the world of homeless, mistreated and exploited dogs and the challenges they face while also focusing on “dog champions” – the individuals, small groups and professional organizations around the world dedicated to helping dogs. Enhanced with photos, informational sidebars and inspiring stories, “No Shelter Here” encourages young readers to become dog champions in their own communities.
