Kids between ages of 5-13 are invited to take part in this enrichment program for children and shelter cats.
The shelter can be a stressful environment for our feline friends. The higher the levels of stress, the more prone they are to becoming sick. The sound and interaction of children reading to cats are both soothing and stress-relieving for our homeless cats awaiting homes. Studies have shown that children reading to pets helps with learning disabilities because it provides them with a relaxing, stress and judgment-free outlet for them to practice their reading. In addition to providing an enriching environment for our cats, this program helps promote adoption, encourages treating animals with kindness and teaches the importance of spaying/neutering.
