Read Across America Day at JHS

Celebrate National Read Across America Day at the Jacksonville Humane Society on Monday, March 2!

People of all ages are invited to visit JHS between 12-7pm to read out loud to the dogs and cats. From 3-6pm only, enjoy light refreshments and special activities including:

  • free books for all participants while supplies last
  • scavenger hunt
  • crafts for the animals at JHS
  • book signing and “pawtographs” from Jessie Miller and Winnie of EPIC Outreach

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 sponsored by Regions Bank with program support from The Jim Moran Foundation.
