Read Across America Day
Celebrate National Read Across America Day at the Jacksonville Humane Society on Wednesday, March 2!
People of all ages are invited to visit JHS between 12-6:30pm to read out loud to the dogs and cats. From 3-6pm only, enjoy special activities including:
- free books for all participants while supplies last
- scavenger hunt
- crafts for the animals at JHS
Reading out loud is a wonderful form of enrichment for animals in shelters – it lowers their stress levels, helps them feel more calm in their kennels, and also helps them feel more comfortable around people.
Read Across America Day at JHS is made possible thanks to program support from The Jim Moran Foundation.
