Telling Tails

Telling Tails is a volunteer program for adults with children ages 5-17 to read to adoptable animals (mostly cats) at MHHS on Wednesday and Sundays, between 3-5 pm.

  • Adults become volunteers, and are responsible for training and supervising their children.
  • If your application is approved, we will send you an orientation and related virtual trainings for opportunities that you are interested in.
  • For Telling Tails volunteers: a small start-up fee of $60 covers the cost of the background check, supplies, uniform and training.
  • A background check is required.
  • Please note: we use peanut butter throughout our facility.
