Tale For Two

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

A 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. 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 A Tale for Two, click here. 

A Halloween Tale for Two
Monday, October 24 from 4pm to 5pm

A Tale for Two happens every Monday, but we’ve spiced things up for our October 24th event! This special Tale for Two has a Halloween twist, and some of our animals will be in costume! The animals will welcome donations of treats or toys, and we will have treats available for all the young readers. Readers are invited to come in costume as well, but we ask that any masks be left at home as they can scare our animal residents. There is limited space for this special event, so reserve your spot today! Click here to purchase tickets.
