Thank you to the Children's Museum of Richmond for inviting Sprite's HERO to celebrate Read Across America month with them! Young visitors to CMoR shared dozen of stories with our Paws to READ teams and even invited them to a birthday party!

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

Sprite's Hero manages the Paws to R.E.A.D. program in Richmond and surrounding counties. READ MORE...
