Desert Cat Rescue & Sanctuary of Arizona Presents Our
"Lives & Literacy"
Reading Program

Desert Cat Rescue & Sanctuary is partnering with the City of Safford, though the Safford City - Graham County Library!


Many of our adopters have children. What if we could encourage all of those children to read? Maybe to read to their newly adopted pet? How many children can we teach the joy of reading – a gift for life?! This is the perfect way to promote respect for the pets in addition to bonding in order to create best friends for life, ensuring forever homes!

This program is for children ages 0-12. When someone with children adopts a pet from us in this age range, each child will be given a book bag with new books, so they can go home and read to their new best friend! The book bags will include age appropriate pet care instructions for the children too. Our PetSmart partners will also be adding to the bags with treats and toys!
