The Rescue Readers program is for ages 5 and up.
Rescue Readers helps children and rescue animals develop important personal skills. A joint effort co-managed by PAWS and the SD Discovery Center, this heart-warming program sees young students visit our animals - and read to them!
Completely supervised and totally safe, Rescue Readers helps students develop their social skills, overcome shyness, and become more comfortable with reading. As for the animals: they not only benefit from the attention, they also become more comfortable in social environments, and learn more about interacting with children (they also just love stories)!
Bring your own book or read one of ours!
Each session, we will select an item the shelter needs as a suggested donation!
