WCAC is partnering with dozens of other pet shelters across the country to paw-ticipate in a national howliday that gives back to our furry friends! For Deck the Howls, children are invited to share the holiday spirit with adoptable pets by cozying up in their favorite pajamas and reading holiday stories provided by the Franklin Public library to our animals.
The children benefit by practicing their reading skills in front of a non-judgmental audience and developing empathy to help make compassionate, responsible choices when interacting with animals in the future. There will also be an additional opportunity to decorate cookies, create an ornament, take part in animal themed games for prizes and even meet the big man himself, Santa!
The animals benefit by learning how to relax around visitors, leading to quicker adoptions. Hot cocoa will be provided by Starbucks. Space is limited, reserve your child's spot today!
Cost: $25 - proceeds benefit Williamson County Animal Center
