Reading to Rescues is back! Thank you for your patience while we put this special programme on hold due to Covid.


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, 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: 4:00-4:30; 4:30-5:00; 5:00-5:30

DATES: Wednesday April 13, 20, 27; May 4, 11, 18, 25; June 1, 8, 15

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

  • Participation is limited to 5 children per session and is subject to change (our spaces update weekly, so please stay tuned for spaces to open).
  • Siblings and/or friends are not permitted during your child’s reading session unless they are signed up in the same time slot.
  • Children will need to sign in and out of their session and wear a Reading to Rescues name tag at all times.
  • Due to COVID-19 restrictions, children will need to bring and read their own book(s) and/or reading practise work to each session, we will not be able to provide reading material at this time.
