Come read to our cats and dogs at the Santa Cruz SPCA! Students can build confidence and fluency with their reading while our rescued shelter animals are soothed by the rhythms of language and nuzzle closer. Bring your own books or use some of ours! What a great way to spend time with our animals and gain their trust. Book now!
Do you have an emerging reader on your hands who might benefit from practicing their reading with a non-judgmental animal audience? SPCA Rescue Readers will give your reader the chance to practice their reading aloud to both dogs and cats, but it also offers comfort and stress relief to those shelter animals at the same time. It is a win-win for everyone!
We have only one student or one family of students signing up for each Rescue Readers session. They happen on alternating Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-4:30pm. Students can read to both cats and dogs as long as they have a parent accompany them. (Maximum number of readers is 10)
