Paws and Pages

February 23 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
HSSA Main Campus, 635 W Roger Rd
Tucson, AZ 85705 United States

The Paws and Pages Literacy Program aims to give children the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of shelter pets while building confidence and improving reading skills. It has been observed by the APSCA that being read to helps fearful or shy dogs become more comfortable with people because there is no forced interaction. Here at HSSA, we will read to shy dogs and cats as well as sick dogs who are long term residents with limited human interaction. As exemplified by shelter literacy programs across the country, this reading program will encourage our shelter pets to approach the front of their kennels for potential adopters and thus improve their chances of a short stay with us at HSSA.
