Pet Assisted Therapy Storytellers (LOAL Members Only)

Pet Assisted Therapy Storytelling is a very simple concept: Children read to dogs. The dogs listen and don’t tease, laugh, or judge the child. Pet Assisted Therapy Storytelling provides a positive, nonthreatening, fun environment to support literacy.  All participating dogs and their handlers must have pet therapy certification.  We are sorry, but therapy cats are unable to participate in this program.
