Connecting kids & dogs to unleash their potential!

Sprite's HERO delivers programs for children that provide them the opportunity to create relationships with dogs that can increase their self-esteem, confidence and empathy.


Our Paws to READ program will be visiting with children at Dorey Park Farmer's Market starting this Saturday, July 7th!  Bring a book to share with Zeke from 11-12:30pm.  See our calendar for all our summer Paws to READ programs.

Visit the Children's Museum of Richmond, meet SUPER WHY, and read to a dog - ALL ON THE SAME DAY!  Saturday, July 14th, Paws to READ teams will again be visiting CMoR to share your books.

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