THURSDAYS, between 1 PM - 3 PM during the summer months. Do you have a child that loves animals and wants to volunteer to help our homeless pets? Parents are invited to accompany children ages 6 & up to read a book aloud to a furry friend for 15 minute intervals. Children gain confidence in their reading skills while helping shy homeless pets become more comfortable with people. We encourage kids to bring their favorite books to share with the animals. However, we also have a few dozen animal-themed books that children can choose to read from as well. All shelter pets will remain confined to their cage space. Children are invited to sit outside a pet’s cage space on the floor and read calmly using soft voices making no sudden movements for a period lasting no longer than 15 minutes per pet. Online registration is required. No poking or pulling or grabbing of pets allowed. No running, loud noises or sudden movements allowed. All children must be supervised at all times by an adult parent or guardian while at the CAP Animal Shelter. Learn more at
