Unleashing Imagination: The Telling Tails Program at New Hampshire Humane Society

At New Hampshire Humane Society, we believe in the power of connection and the transformative impact it can have on both animals and humans. The Telling Tails Program is more than just a reading session; it's a bridge between the written word and the unconditional love of our four-legged friends. This innovative program welcomes individuals of all ages to engage in self-guided, appointment-only reading sessions with our shelter pets. Whether you're a child discovering the magic of storytelling or an adult seeking a tranquil space to read, our program offers a unique and enjoyable environment for everyone.

One of the primary focuses of the Telling Tails Program is to enhance youth literacy by providing a comfortable and supportive space for children to practice their reading skills. Numerous studies have shown that reading to animals can boost confidence, improve fluency, and create a positive association with reading. By incorporating pets into the learning process, we aim to inspire a lifelong love of reading and a deep appreciation for the bond between humans and animals.

To ensure a stress-free and enjoyable experience for both our readers and our furry residents, the Telling Tails Program operates on a self-guided, appointment-only basis. This allows participants to choose a time that suits them best to engage in a quiet reading session with one of our shelter pets. These one-on-one encounters provide a peaceful setting where the focus is entirely on the book, the reader, and the furry friend by their side.

Beyond the realm of literacy, the Telling Tails Program also serves as a valuable tool for pet socialization. Regular interaction with humans not only helps our shelter animals become more accustomed to human company but also increases their chances of finding forever homes. This program creates a positive environment where pets can receive the socialization they need, ultimately contributing to their overall well-being.

The Telling Tails Program at New Hampshire Humane Society is a testament to the incredible bond that can be formed between humans and animals through the simple act of reading. Schedule a self-guided reading session today and embark on a journey where the magic of storytelling and the companionship of our shelter pets come together in perfect harmony. Join us as we continue to weave tales of love, learning, and connection at New Hampshire Humane Society.
