Rescue Readers

Rescue Readers is a program designed to help children learn about animal welfare while encouraging them to participate in reading activities. Rescue Ranch will visit offsite locations (such as schools, libraries, churches, etc.) for a small fee to read aloud selected books about humane animal education topics, and also bring one of our Animal Ambassadors to meet and greet participants.

  • $50 for the first hour, $35 for subsequent hours

    • $10 travel fee for less than 20 miles
    • $0.58 per mile of travel for 20 miles or more

Rescue Readers Read-a-thon is an extension of our Rescue Readers program; individuals, schools, or small groups are encouraged to plan and participate in Read-a-thons. Rescue Readers is a fundraising opportunity to help Rescue Ranch provide quality care to our animals while encouraging and rewarding students for reading. After securing sponsors, readers pick a 10 day period to log their reading. Our 10 days of reading gets students involved and excited about books, encouraging them to develop strong reading skills which are key to educational success.
