||BARKS (Books and Reading for Kids in Suffolk) Program Event
June 21, 2013
6:30pm - 8pm
St. Paul's Episcopal Church
Suffolk Humane Society and St.Paul's Episcopal Church have partenered
to bring the BARKS (Books and Reading for Kids in Suffolk) Program
to Suffolk children. The program allows children to read one on one
to a therapy dog and their handler in a non-threatening environment
and utilizes therapy dogs because they are non-judgmental listeners.
Your child will feel confident while reading to a furry friend!
In addition to reading, there will be treats
for the children and coffee & donuts will also be available. Walk-ins are welcome, and
enrollment is first come, first served. To get more information, please contact Michele Thames
at (757) 538-3030 or through email at MicheleThames@SuffolkHumaneSociety.com
