Certified Therapy Animals assisting people of all ages.
The goal of the program is to present an opportunity for any child to read to a Therapy Dog one on one or within a group setting.
Therapy Dogs have calm personalities and can sit quietly to listen to the children read. Accompanied by their handler, the team are a wonderful asset to any reading program.
The program can be beneficial in a group setting or individual reading sessions.
Working with the Volunteer Handler, you can schedule times that will work best for all involved.
Zoey is a 7 year old, chocolate Labrador, with a very sweet and gentle personality who has been working at a local library listening to children read now for several months. Her calm, laid back personality has facilitated many a child to sit on the floor with her, snuggle in and read her their favorite story. I have witnessed firsthand, children relax and forget their fear of reading aloud when sitting reading to Zoey.
The Volunteer Handler of Zoey, Cheryl Marland-Thomas has had many years of experience working with Therapy Dogs, in medical facilities and nonmusical facilities.
