Read to Rover

10:00 AM | Kansas Humane Society

We all know how difficult it can be to get our kids to read. What if we can help make it fun?!

The Kansas Humane Society wants children with reading difficulties get an opportunity to read aloud to a supportive, non-judgmental listener -- a registered therapy dog!

A child who may be hesitant to read aloud to his peers is typically less stressed when reading to a dog. The best part is that the dog never judges the child's reading ability.

Kids will have an individual 20-minute session reading to a furry friend, learning about interacting with dogs, and other educational arts & crafts projects!

For children Grades 1 - 5
Classes are held every 3rd Saturday of the month, from 10:00am - 11:30am.
The 90 minute classes are in the Kansas Humane Society Learning Center.
A donation of $3 is requested per child.
