**Please NOTE: to ensure the safety of our animals and our animal care staff, we have had to pause our Reading to Rescues programme until schools enter Phase 3 of school restrictions. We hope to be back up and running as soon as possible. We are also revamping our booking process, so hopefully once we enter Phase 3, this will be ready to launch as well. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

SPCA is pleased to announce that the start of our Reading to Rescues programme!  Reading to Rescues is for children aged 5-12 years from beginning to advanced readers and is supervised by a Bermuda schoolteacher.  This programme is a wonderful opportunity for our community to engage with our animals, it gives children the chance to practise and sharpen their reading skills in front of a non-judgemental audience, and it provides our animals with much needed one-on-one socialisation time.

COST: $5 per session

TIMES: Half hour sessions-days and times TBC

Parents/guardians can register their child(ren) for one 30-minute session each week with our shelter animals.  Please note:
