Would your child enjoy reading to shelter cats? (Grades K-8)

At the Animal Welfare League of Frederick County (a no-kill animal rescue) children are invited to read to rescue cats. The program encourages children to improve their reading skills while also benefiting the shelter animals.

Cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing. Children bring their own book(s) and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Reservations required and space is limited. One child per 30 min. session.
