In celebration of National Kids and Pets Day, El Paso Animal Services is partnering with Petco Love to inspire local children to share their love with shelter pets through volunteering. El Paso Animal Services will be hosting an event Friday, April 22 to promote the Department’s ‘Kitty Reading Book Club’ volunteer reading program for young animal lovers.
At this event, El Paso Animal Services will be presenting a reading of Tony and Emmy award-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth’s new book, “What Will I Do With My Love Today,” which advocates pet adoption and the power of love and kindness. A ‘Sunny’s Safety’ Bite Prevention Class will also be presented, as well as more information on the department’s Kitty Reading Book Club. Children will end the event by reading to our adoptable cats and kittens.
El Paso Animal Services and Petco Love will also be giving away limited free copies of this book to the first 10 children that attend the event.
