About the event

Happy Tails is looking for new members for READing Paws. Cats and dogs are eligible. The dog or cat must like children and be able to lie down for 15 minutes at a time. It is a good visit for an older pet and not for pets that like a lot of action.

  • Name
  • Phone Number
  • Pet's name and type of pet
  • Pet's training (i.e. obedience, CGC)
  • Team Leader training completed (yes or no; if no - please see information below)
