The Maryland SPCA's Reading Program is back! Designed for kids, ages 6-12 years old, to come practice their reading skills with the shelter pets!

The Reading Program is offered at both our Falls Rd. location and our satellite location called Project Adopt in the White Marsh Mall. The program benefits children as well as the pets who are waiting for their forever home. The reading program provides the opportunity for kids to strengthen their reading skills without judgment and teaches compassion and kindness towards animals. The pets enjoy the company and it helps to reduce stress and anxiety in a kennel environment. 

There is no fee for this event, but space is limited and registration is required.
