Dogs are amazing listeners. Come curl up with your favorite book and read to a certified therapy dog from Humane Hearts Pet Therapy Program. Humane Hearts Pet Therapy is an extension of the Humane Society of Forsyth County. Humane Hearts Pets are owned by people who want to volunteer to enrich the lives of special groups within our community. The role of a therapy pet is to work as a team with their handler to provide emotional and physical support to all people. Volunteering with a Humane Hearts Therapy Pet allows the pet to provide unconditional love to people of all ages. This provides therapy to both the people and pets.
Our therapy dog's name is Oliver. He's a super sweet and gentle whippet. Reading to a therapy dog is a wonderful way to encourage blossoming or reluctant readers to improve their literacy skills. If you know someone one who would be interested in reading to Oliver, Please email us here, with the time you would like to sign up. Reading sessions are about 15-minute sessions.
The staff at Read It Again would like to give a very special thanks go to the Humane Hearts program at the Humane Society of Forsyth County for supporting this program with volunteers and therapy dogs.
