Wags & Tales Summer Reading Program

The Wags & Tales Summer Reading Program is designed to help our shelter cats & dogs become more adoptable.  

Reading to our dogs and cats helps to bring comfort and reduce the anxiety of shelter pets and nurtures empathy in children. 

Who: Kind children ages 5 – 12 (accompanied by an adult)

Where: The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin

When: 45 min. sessions on Wednesdays at 11:30 or 12:30

CLICK HERE TO SIGN-UP

Pre-Registration is required. Limited Space available- Only 10 children per session.

Please notify us via email (dchristiansen@petsgohome.org) or phone (608-752-5622) if you need to cancel.

Children can practice their reading to a non-judgmental audience and also help acclimate often timid or anxious shelter cats & dogs to the presence of humans. Participants sit within designated cat enclosures or outside of a dog’s kennel and read to them.
Closed-toed, rubber-soled shoes are required to protect your feet and give better traction when walking through the animal enclosures. 
You are welcome to bring a favorite book!
