Connecting kids & dogs to unleash their potential!

We deliver programs for vulnerable children that provide them the opportunity to create relationships with dogs, which allow them to experience increased self-esteem, confidence and empathy, while lowering their stress and anxiety.


Meet Sprite's HERO representatives and Paws to READ volunteers at Dorey Park Farmer's Market Saturday, September, 1st!  Bring a book to share with Zeke from 11-12:30pm.  See our calendar for all our summer Paws to READ programs.

Thank you Ellwood Thompson's and all who shop there, for choosing Sprite's HERO as a wooden nickel participant!
