Huey’s Heroes Reading Program

August 22, 2018 3:30 pm

Huey's Heroes Reading Program was designed to help readers of all ages improve their reading skills, while sharing those skills with animals in a shelter. Participants can use the program to learn the fundamental basics of reading (early stage readers), increase their ability to read to a non-judgmental listener (elementary readers), and/or share their love of reading (advanced readers) with an animal that longs for and benefits from companionship. Please make sure to contact savinghuey@gmail.com to reserve your spot. Reading times fill up fast!
