Join the Rescue Readers!
The Rescue Readers meet every Sunday from 1:00pm - 2:30pm at the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter.
The goal is to read to the dogs and cats of the shelter to help them feel less stressed in their kennels.
Bring a book (or borrow one of ours), a small stool to sit on (or borrow one of ours), and a parent.
