Do your kids love reading? Do they also love dogs? Put their love and talents to good work and have them join our summer Doggy Reading Book Club! RSVP REQUIRED!

Our Doggy Reading Program is recruiting new members that are book and dog lovers, ages 10-15 years old.

At this orientation, you and your child will learn a little more about our Doggy Reading Book Club, some hands-on dog handling and safety training, and how your child can be a Book Club member to provide the pups in our Doggy Terrace some love and enrichment, while also being able to show them for adoption.

There’s also no cost to become a member of our Book Club!

Because we want to ensure the safety and attention for all Book Club members, there are ONLY 9 SLOTS AVAILABLE per orientation. To RSVP your child’s participation, or for more information, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Rose Janice at (915) 487-7596 or janicera@elpasotexas.gov.
