Paws & Tale’s Kennel Reading Program

A little library was recently installed at the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center as part of an Eagle Scout project. The center is launching a new program called Paws & Tale’s Kennel Reading Program. The program is designed to help our shelter dogs become more adoptable. Reading to the dogs helps bring comfort to and reduce the anxiety of shelter pets, and it nurtures empathy in children. As a bonus, new readers gain confidence and improve their reading skills. Participants sit outside of the dog's kennel and read to them. 

The center is inviting groups interested in reading to the homeless dogs. Groups interested in participating should contact the center at 949-470-3045 to reserve a date and time.
