Shelter Tails

Animal Haven’s new reading initiative, Shelter Tails, celebrates the connection young children have with animals. The program provides a special opportunity for children to visit Animal Haven to make a difference in the lives of homeless dogs and cats while also strengthening reading skills and confidence. The animals benefit too: the extra attention and enrichment help the most shy and anxious animals in the facility while waiting to be adopted. We think it’s a win-win for all.

The benefits of reading to animals for children:

  • Reading aloud improves communication and vocabulary
  • Children can learn compassion and empathy
  • Children can build confidence by reading to animals who are non-judgmental
