Deck the Howls

Thursday, December 5, 2019

WCAC is partnering with dozens of other pet shelters across the country to paw-ticipate in a national howliday and gives back to our furry friends! Children (ages 4-10) will have the opportunity to read to shelter pets, decorate cookies and visit with Santa. The purpose of Deck the Howls is simple–children are invited to share the holiday spirit with adoptable pets by cozying up in their favorite pajamas and reading holiday stories to furry friends. The children benefit by practicing their reading skills in front of a non-judgmental audience and developing empathy to help make compassionate, responsible choices when interacting with animals in the future. The animals benefit by learning how to relax around visitors, leading to quicker adoptions. Holiday-themed books are being provided by the Williamson County public library and people (and dog cookies) are being provided by 4 Paws Pasteries! Space is limited. Come by WCAC to pre-pay and reserve your child's spot today!
