Cat Tales Reading Program


Cat Tales Reading Program is back, virtually this school year!

We invite Philadelphia classroom teachers to register your class for a free Cat Tales Virtual Reading session. Cats provide a non-judgmental audience for students to practice their reading skills while simultaneously helping our shelter cats de-stress. The program is open to kindergarten through 8th grade.

How it works:

  • Teachers and school staff can register their classroom through the sign-up link below. We will do our best to meet the requests of as many classrooms as possible.
  • The entire session is usually 1 to 1 ½ hours with each student spending 10 minutes virtually reading to adoptable cats.
  • Participating classrooms will receive a special delivery to their school of PSPCA pencils, pins and Cat Tales Reading program bookmarks. This can be dropped off no contact or at the front desk.
  • Please submit the interest form at least 2 weeks before your requested dates.
