Huey’s Heroes Reading Program

May 23, 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 to reserve your spot. Reading times fill up fast!
