Paws 2 Read is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization offering reading programs that allow children to enhance their literacy skill by reading aloud to pet therapy animals. Our programs enable children to establish confidence in their reading capabilities, free from worry of messing up a word or being laughed at. The experience of a non-critical, caring environment can truly change a reader’s outlook on life and that is why Paws 2 Read was created.
