Monthly Programs

Read to Rover

Read to Rover

Second Thursday of Every Month

Studies show that children gain confidence when reading to dogs. Whether your child is a pre-reader, just learning to read, or is a proficient reader, they will enjoy this fun program. When readers get three punches on their punch card, they get a free book! This program is in partnership with Hutchinson Kennel Club Therapy Dogs.
