Weekly

What part of Wake County are you interested in volunteering with?

In northern Raleigh, esp. Stonehenge and Greystone neighborhoods. Would also be interested in area colleges and universities.

Please add a short bio of why you are interested in the See Spot Read Calendar and a little about your companion therapy dog.

My sweet dog, Garbo, is a Golden Retriever who joined my family when she was 2 years old. She came with some fear issues in her baggage as well as a love of children. We have volunteered as a therapy team for several years now (2009 - present) and prefer familiar venues with established routines. We both enjoy volunteering with children and I LOVE books, so See Spot Read has been a very good fit for us.

Introduction

Miss Garbo & I are registered with Pet Partners. I also have certifications with Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) & Red Rover Readers (humane education). We are honored to participate with See Spot Read!

What Amy P. is saying about this Meetup Group

[2009] FOX ROAD ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Fantastic Librarian who is dog lover. She checks the students' books before they come to us to make sure the books aren't too long. ~~~~~ Positive and cooperative 1st and 2nd grade students; great diversity. ~~~~~ In media center pet partner teams can sit in different sections so students and dogs are not distracted by others. ~~~~~ Media center and office handily located just inside the front door. ~~~~~ School location off Hwy 540 easy to access, parking available.
