City of Pleasanton Public Library: Paws to Read

Paws to Read Volunteer

Paws to Read is a partnership with Valley Humane Society and their Canine Comfort teams to promote literacy and a love of animals for students in 1st through 5th grades. 

By providing safe, positive interaction with animals, Paws to Read offers children a relaxed, non-judgmental environment in which to practice reading. The benefits of reading to animals have been documented to include increased reading fluency and improved attitudes about reading aloud.

If you would like to apply to volunteer for this program, you must be a Valley Humane Society Canine Comfort Team
