Our Book Buddies program gives children the chance to read their favorite books while cozying up to cats and small pets, waiting for new homes. We invite children to our main campus in Fairport to practice their reading skills in a positive, non-judgmental environment. Our pets are great listeners! Book Buddies also benefit the pets themselves: Our feline residents find the rhythmic sound of reading to be comforting and soothing, and more time spent with people means that they’ll become better socialized as they wait for adoption. Want to bring a sibling or friend? Add one reading buddy in the next section of the registration for an extra $3!
