What's happening at ARF?

ARFan story time - read with our shelter cats!


A great program is taking off in shelters everywhere and ARF is

jumping on board with ARFan Story Time! We invite students of all ages and any reading level to the shelter to read to the cats and kittens. We feel this program will help students with their reading skills and allow for the animals to socialize with children increasing their chances for adoption. Snuggle up in a comfy bean bag chair with a cute kitten and read a great book, you can bring your own book or read one of ours. All ages welcome, anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. We hope to see this program assist in child literacy, cat enrichment, and instill a compassion for animals in younger generations!


Available Story Times are Saturday 11-3pm, Sunday 12-3 or by appointment. If you are interested, please email Natalie@animalrescuemobile.org for further details and to schedule your young reader’s ARFan Storytime.
