Paws to R.E.A.D. Program: The Reading Education Assistance Dog (R.E.A.D.) Program for children is made possible through Healing Paws, Inc located in Fond du Lac. It is a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of children and adults in special circumstances, through safe therapeutic interaction with dogs and cats. Studies have shown that reading to therapy animals helps children relax, increases their interest in reading, and improves their reading skills.
Our programs have been a huge success, so we will continue offering them! However, we are taking a break over the summer. The next one will be on Tuesday, September 9 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Handlers and their dogs will work with individual children on a one-on-one basis for about fifteen minutes each. Children may choose library books to read or bring a book from home to read to the dog. PLEASE CALL OR STOP IN TO REGISTER!
Based upon participation, the program will tentatively continue to be held the second Tuesday of each month at the same time. This program is free and open to the public!
