Reading aloud becomes something extraordinary when sharing a book with a dog! All Ears Reading® pairs young readers with a Pet Hug Pack® therapy dog to help children improve skills, instill confidence, and develop a love of reading.
Animal Tales is a free program for kids Pre-K and younger that will expose your child to the magic of animals and shelter life from a young age, forming a permanent love for animals.
Join us on the third Thursday of every month from 9 am to 9:45 am for an exciting morning of free play in the Learning Center's Vet Clinic and Pet Store, animal storybook time, and meet & greet with a member of ARF's canine outreach team, the Pet Hug Pack!
No registration necessary! Donations are always welcome, but not required for participation. Children must be supervised at all times - ARF staff is not responsible for supervising the children.
