Tuesdays from 5 – 6 p.m.

The Maryland SPCA’s Wagging Tales: Reading Hour for kids ages 6-12 years old features monthly reading themes and participation incentive prizes. This program reinforces to children that pets should be loved and treated kindly while they strengthen their literacy skills without being judged on their reading abilities. Additionally, the pets enjoy the company, and it reduces stress in pets who may be anxious in a kennel environment.

Children are encouraged to bring their own books that relate to the monthly theme.

January: Being a Hero in your Community

February: Love for a Lifetime

March: Animal Shelters and the Community

April: Spring Has Sprung: Overpopulation

May: Pet Care
