IndyStar | Season for Sharing: Paws & Think helps kids read by giving them the best listeners — dogs
PJ Kelly rubs the therapy dog’s thick, white fur as he breezes through “Piglet Comes Home,” the book he’d picked to read that day.
The 8-year-old has always loved stories and enjoys finding new books at Barnes & Noble, but he had little confidence in his reading skills. His mother said he used to open a book, see all the words, and get intimidated.
Paws & Think’s programs serve Marion and the surrounding counties, and we have many volunteer opportunities for the busiest of schedules! Whether you are interested in volunteering in a hands-on way with our Youth-Canine or Therapy Dog programs or helping out behind the scenes, your contribution will help us to positively impact both people and dogs in our community.
