Tale For Two

A VBSPCA Reading Program Connecting Youth and Shelter Pets
Mondays from 4pm to 5pm

Tale for Two is an extension of our Listening Ears Program which pairs a young reader with an animal to make the experience of reading more fun. By bringing the readers to our shelter, our adoptable cats and dogs get to benefit from the positive presence of a child, boosting confidence in both the pet and the person. This in-shelter reading program is open to youth ages 6-13, and visits take place on Monday afternoons between 4pm and 5pm.

New in 2024: Single visits or multi-visit club memberships are available and include VBSPCA swag. Visits must be scheduled in advance, and children are invited to bring their own books or they can choose from the VBSPCA library. To sign your child up for Tale for Two, click here.
