Reading for Paws
Reading For Paws Summer Reading Program
Reading for Paws is a program intended for an audience of 2nd grade through 8th grade children. Its purpose is to promote children’s reading skills and interests, while also providing a means for socializing and promoting human interaction with the animals that are housed at the Watauga Humane Society’s Adoption Center.
Reading for Paws will be Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursday June 6- August 10. More information can be found HERE.
The Shoe Drive is on! Please donate your new, gently worn and used shoes, bounded in pairs by string or rubber bands, by dropping them off at the Bare Bones Boutique or the Watauga Humane Society. Shoes collected will not only raise funds for our animals, but will help create micro-businesses for individuals in some of the most underdeveloped economies in the world, including in Haiti, Ghana, Nicaragua, Togo, Honduras, Swaziland, Guatemala, Bolivia, Tanzania, Botswana, Bolivia, Benin, Zambia and Senegal.
Would you volunteer to sign up for our ONE BAG CHALLENGE? You would check with your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, etc. for their gently used or new shoes. (No torn shoes, please!) We will supply the bag(s) and rubber bands to put around shoe pairs. When you collect 25 pairs, you would return the bag to either the Watauga Humane Society or to Bare Bones Boutique, and get another bag. If interested, contact Jody Sloan, Shoe Drive Coordinator, at JodySloan2@gmail.com
