On Tuesday, the Animal Rescue League’s Litter-ary Club had their last biweekly visit of the semester. Litter-ary Club is made up of students from Amos Hiatt Middle School in Des Moines.
During visits, the group practices reading reading books out loud to our adoptable animals. The program helps kids improve their reading skills by giving them a non-judgmental listener. The animals don’t care if the students slip up on a word here and there — they are just happy to have some company!
For their final meeting, the Litter-ary Club students took a trip out to the barn to meet with and read to the horses. The club typically practices their skills in the main building of ARL, but had a special day on Tuesday to wrap up a great semester!
