    Event description

    Come read to shelter pets at the Humane Society for Greater Nashua!

    Youths ages 4-13 (accompanied by a parent/guardian) are invited to participate in a reading session at the shelter where they will receive a "Certificate of Compassion" and a goodie bag!

    This on-site education program offered by HSFN benefits readers and rescues by providing socialization for the shelter pets and reading practice for kids in front of a non-judgmental audience. Readers may bring their books from home, or borrow one from the shelter's lending library.

    Four 30-minute sessions are available between 11 am- 1 pm. 7 slots are available each session. Please book a separate slot within your timeframe for EACH CHILD who will be in attendance from your family. A parent or guardian must be present and engaged with their children during the session. One adult may bring up to 3 readers. Space is limited and there are many interested readers, so only one session is allowed per child. Please note: For safety reasons, there will be NO direct contact with the animals. Readers will engage with the pets from a safe distance without hands-on contact.

    Benefits for the Readers:

    - Builds literacy skills
    - Strengthens confidence in reading out loud in a safe environment
    - Develops a stronger vocabulary
    - Increases attention span
    - Promotes empathy and compassion

    Benefits for the Shelter Pets:

    - Introduction to children in a safe, controlled environment
    - Exposure to multiple people and situations
    - Builds trust in humans
    - Attention and love!
