ALL children are invited to come read to a Humane Society of Marion County dog on select Saturday mornings at 11 a.m. Here’s how it works: The child must register in advance. Completed the online Registration Form to sign up NOW [click here]. Choose the dates you prefer. If the date is available to select then your child will be accepted into the class. Maximum of 12 children per session. A parent/guardian must accompany the child and stay at the shelter (in a separate area) while the child is reading. This is because children do better when they are reading to a non-judgmental dog with no outside criticism.
