at the CAP Animal Shelter!
Do you have a child that loves animals and wants to volunteer to help our homeless pets?
Have them read to our shelter pets!
Parents are invited to accompany children ages 6 & up to read a book aloud to a furry friend for 15 minute intervals. Children gain confidence in their reading skills while helping shy homeless pets become more comfortable with people.
Our furry residents crave attention, and this program provides it in a comfortable and non-threatening manner. This particular program requires no training & no waivers.
We encourage kids to bring their favorite books to share with the animals. We also have a few dozen animal-themed books that children can choose to read from as well. All shelter pets will remain inside their kennel space.
Children are invited to sit outside a pet’s kennel space on the floor and read calmly using soft voices making no sudden movements for a period lasting no longer than 15 minutes per pet.
Reservations Available :

3:30 - 4:30 pm, 4 slots for individual children

Why read to shelter pets? The research…
Special thanks to the Humane Society of Missouri, who shared their Shelter Buddies Reading Guide offering helpful tips to organizations like Citizens for Animal Protection.
