Read to Roo is a local affiliate of Reading Education Assistance Dogs, an official IRS recognized nonprofit group. This means that all donations and sponsorship money is considered tax deductible and you can receive tax credit for your generosity!

With our deepest appreciation, we thank the Animals for Life Foundation for awarding us a grant to help with our 2012-2013 school year!

Donations are processed by Intermountain Therapy Animals, the founding organization of Reading Education Assistance Dogs. A small processing fee is extracted and placed into their general R.E.A..D. fund. The rest of the donation money is directed back to the Read to Roo program to benefit the children in our local school.

Donations collected for Read to Roo will go toward the operations of the program, including acquiring reading and educational materials, reference sheets and small reward items (such as bookmarks or stickers). You can choose to make a general donation to the fund or you can choose to sponsor one or more children.
