SVACA in the News!
SVACA is in the NEWS!
KGO-TV visited SVACA's Animal Care Center yesterday to do a feature story on the Kiddies 2 Kitties program. Thanks to Palo Alto Humane Society for sponsoring this wonderful program in partnership with SVACA! Our kitties (and a couple sweet bunnies too!) cooperated with a large crowd of Cub Scouts for a memorable experience!
The Kiddies 2 Kiddies reading program gives children the opportunity to read to cats (and some dogs and rabbits too!) at the Animal Care Center. The program helps children of all ages develop their reading skills and gives them a hands-on, up-close encounter with shelter animals. It introduces kids of all ages to cats, kittens and other animals where they learn about body language and how to interact with them safely. It's a win-win for all as it helps the animals with their own socialization skills.
The program is held on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
