Rescue Readers

About the Program

Tails to Tell

Rescue Readers helps young children and rescue dogs develop important personal skills. A joint effort co-managed by Fetching Tails and local educators, this heart-warming program sees young students visit our dogs - and read to them.

Completely supervised and totally safe (all dogs are leashed and children are monitored), this program helps students develop their social skills, overcome shyness, and become more comfortable with reading.  As for the dogs: they not only benefit from the attention, they also become more comfortable in social environments, and learn more about interacting with children (they also just love stories).
