    - Watauga Humane Society is introducing a new summer reading program called Paws for Reading beginning June 14 and running mornings from 11:00-12:30 Tuesday through Friday for eight weeks, ending on August 5. Designed for children in grades 2-8, the program’s purpose is to promote children’s reading skills and interests while also providing a means for socializing and promoting human interaction with cats and kittens at the Adoption Center.
    Reading for Paws is based on research conducted at Tufts University that established that pets can be considered a form of human support; that human/animal interactions can make the learning process more comfortable and enjoyable for children; that autistic children, in particular, who have contact with animals have demonstrated increased use of language and have improved social interactions when with animals. Children involved in the program show better sustained focus and maintain a higher sense of awareness as well as improved attitudes toward school; finally, animals offer a non-evaluative presence that can provide support and comfort to individuals without judging them.

    -Online registration must occur at least one day in advance; the program can accommodate only 14 children a day

    -Reading/animal interaction times will be no more than 30 minutes per day per child

    -Children must sign in at the confirmed time and be accompanied by an adult

    -Children may bring their own books to read or select one at the Center

    -Animals will be provided by Center staff

    -Reading/animal interactions will take place only in space identified by staff

    -Adults must be with their children throughout the confirmed time

    -The child and adult must sign out at the completion of a confirmed time
