The SPCA of Wake County offers a summer reading program for children in grades K through 5. Children are invited to our Adoption Center to read their favorite stories to shelter pets, so that they can develop confidence in their reading abilities in a fun and pressure-free environment.  New this year, children will be assigned to read to two different animals (which could include cats, dogs, bunnies and small pets or a combination thereof) for 20 minutes each (for a total of 40 minutes of reading)!  For the rest of the session, they will participate in a structured activity that will vary each week.

Sessions are one hour long and take place every other Monday.
