Litterary Club

Litter-ary Club

Litter-ary club is a program for students grades K-12. The goal is to provide soothing company to dogs, cats, and critters as they await adoption by reading aloud outside of their kennels.

Participants must first complete an orientation session where they’ll learn about the Animal Rescue League and safety procedures to follow while participating in Litter-ary Club. Following orientation, reading sessions will be scheduled once a week (Mondays from 4:30-5:30 p.m.) for six consecutive weeks. Reading sessions will take place outside of the kennels of adoptable pets.

The cost of Litter-ary Club orientation is $20 which will cover the cost of a T-shirt that must be worn for every session you participate in. Each hour-long reading session is free of charge following orientation. Registration covers the cost for one reader. The parent or guardian is expected to be present with their child for the entirety of each reading session. Each parent or guardian can have up to two of their children participate as long as both children are registered.

Only 10 students will be chosen to participate in each session.

If you would like to participate in our Litter-ary Club, please email Rose Hebron at rhebron@arl-iowa.org to be placed on a waiting list.
