CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Casper College Library and the Casper Humane Society hosted Tales with Tails this afternoon. This was the first time the event has been hosted since the pandemic.

Tales with Tails is a reading program that allows kids to come read to shelter animals. The program benefits both the kids and the dogs. The kids can work on their reading and literacy skills while calming and socializing the dogs.

The kids truly make a difference in the animal’s lives, and those who watch it happen. Parents and volunteers say they walk into a room of dogs barking loudly, but as soon as the children begin reading and the dogs can feel their presences nearby, they begin to calm down. Many of the dogs even fall asleep from being so relaxed.

“It makes my heart happy watching these kids do this for the dogs because these kids are out there trying to make these animals lives better, and it’s just very heartwarming to see,” said Sarah Mailloux, a librarian at Casper College.

Casper College Library plans on doing more Tales with Tails in the future.
