Tales for Tails @ LAM 2.9.21
Leslie A. Malone Center

What is Tales for Tails? 

Tales for Tails is an opportunity for students (1st grade - high school) to practice their reading skills in a judgement-free zone while also helping cats at our shelter get the enrichment and socialization they need. This 1 hour program includes a lesson about Dumb Friends League, tips for safely interacting with the cats, a brief tour, and 20-25 minutes of reading time. Experienced and enthusiastic staff and volunteers will guide your child through this interactive program.

What should my child bring?

Please bring your completed and signed waiver with you at drop off, as this is required for participation in Tales for Tails.  Students must bring their own book. Students must wear closed toed shoes and wear a mask.

Do you allow for early drop-off or late pick up?

Parents or guardians must sign students in and out each session.  Sorry, we cannot accommodate early drop-off or late pick up. Late pick-up after 6:10pm will be charged $1/minute.

Why do I need to sign a media waiver?

We might take pictures throughout the event to use in various Dumb Friends League media publications. A media waiver is not required for participation, however your child may need to sit out of certain group pictures if you choose not to complete one.

Why does volunteering cost money?

Your registration fee enables us to cover the cost of staffing, supplies, insurance, and materials used in Tales for Tails, allowing more resources and donated dollars to be utilized for the homeless pets in our care. 

Can I transfer my program date or get a refund if I can't attend my scheduled date?

Unfortunately, due to limited staffing and resources, all registrations are final and we are not able to offer refunds or transfers.

What other details do I need to know?

Registrations and waivers are required for participation in Tales for Tails. While we try our best to work with every animal lover, we may not be able to accommodate children with severe cat allergies or special needs. In these cases, please contact us before registering to discuss.
