The Peoria Humane Society is offering a reading to dogs program to benefit children and dogs.
Established in 2005, the Paws to Read program helps children develop their literacy skills by reading to specially trained therapy dogs.
The children have fun petting a furry friend while improving their reading skills and boosting their self esteem.
Call our Education Center at 309-672-2447 to register for upcoming Paws to Read programs or to find out how you and your dog can become a reading to dogs volunteer.
To leave the world a better place - whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or an improved social condition - that is to have succeeded. That only one life breathed easier because you lived - that is success.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Peoria Humane Society incorporated more than 70 years ago to help the animals in Peoria. After years of struggling to conduct cruelty investigations and house homeless animals with little funding, the Board of Directors collaborated with the City of Peoria in 1980 to professionalize the animal control program and improve the welfare of animals in Peoria.
The PHS partners with Peoria County and the City of Peoria to offer comprehensive animal welfare and animal control services to all of Peoria county. Freed from the responsibility of funding a shelter, the PHS can devote its time, effort, and funds to increasing the adoption of shelter animals and creating a humane community. And, since the Peoria County Animal Protection Services remains the only shelter in Peoria County, citizens need only visit one place to find a lost pet or adopt a new pet. No duplication of services exists, nor do the organizations clash.
