Paws to R.E.A.D. Program: The Reading Education Assistance Dog (R.E.A.D.) Program for children is made possible through Healing Paws, Inc located in Fond du Lac. It is a non-profit organization committed to enriching the lives of children and adults in special circumstances, through safe therapeutic interaction with dogs and cats. Studies have shown that reading to therapy animals helps children relax, increases their interest in reading, and improves their reading skills.
Based upon participation, the program will tentatively continue to be held the second Tuesday of each month (September-May) from 5:30-7:00 p.m. This program is free and open to the public!
