Kids & Kitties Reading Program
January 25, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Roice-Hurst is excited to launch its Kids & Kitties Reading Program for children ages 4-15. Bring your child to the shelter to read to our adult cats and learn all about cats! Your child can practice literacy skills, gain confidence in reading out loud, and help with important socialization of our shelter cats. Jodi Summers, RHHS’ Cat Counselor, will begin the program with basic information about cat behavior, how to approach a cat, how to read feline body language, and basic grooming and care techniques. Then each child will select a book to read and sit and read to a cat for the remainder of the hour.
Each child must be accompanied by a parent/guardian and space is limited to 5 children and 5 adults. Please call Emily Scanlon, RHHS Volunteer Coordinator, to reserve a space today! 970-434-7337 ext 100.
