The Maryland SPCA's Reading Program at Project Adopt in White Marsh Mall is back! Designed for kids, ages 6-12 years old, to come practice their reading skills with the shelter pets!
“The Reading Program is a program that will benefit children and also benefit the pets waiting to be adopted,” said Katie Flory, director of community affairs at the Maryland SPCA. “It will help reinforce to children that pets should be loved and treated kindly while they continue to strengthen their reading skills without being judged on their reading abilities. The pets enjoy the company, and it reduces stress in pets who may be anxious in a kennel environment.”
The reading program will run on Tuesday evenings from 5:00-6:00pm at the shelter on Falls Rd. and Saturday afternoons from 12:00-1:00pm at Project Adopt at the White Marsh Mall. Bring your favorite books!
