Hey, kids! Read to a PAL dog on Zoom!
Five days a week, PAL dogs are listening to kids read on Zoom. This is a fun, low-stress way for kids to gain skills and confidence reading aloud. During the free 30-minute sessions, children read to two different PAL dogs. Join us!

To use the human-animal bond to comfort the lonely, ease the pain of the sick and enrich the world of children.
How awesome is that!
