A 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.

A Holiday Tale for Two
Monday, December 20th from 4pm to 5:30pm

On Monday, December 20th, we have given our Tale for Two program a holiday twist! In addition to reading to our shelter animals, participating children are invited to participate in our Santa Paws Gift Exchange! Children can bring in an item from our wish list, and we will have some small goodies they can choose from in return. You can view our wish list here. We will also have some holiday cookies to enjoy and some crafts that they can participate in while visiting the shelter. Plus, our very own Mrs. Paws will be on site to celebrate with everyone. Limited spots are available for this special event, so register now to reserve your spot!
