Review for Sit Stay Read Inc, Chicago, IL, USA
I was looking for an organization where I could team up with my dog Hydrox, and give back to the community. I adopted Hydrox from PAWS Chicago - and quickly realized he was such a special doggie. I started to strategize how I could share him with others. I couldn't keep him to myself. After several obedience classes, and passing the Canine Good Citizen test with AKC - I felt he was ready to take the next step.
I'm an avid reader, and the thought of helping kids become more comfortable with their reading skills really appealed to me. The added bonus was being able to do this with my best friend, Hydrox.
Everyone at SSR has been so wonderful to work with from the orientation, Dog test and throughout our interactions from signing up for sessions and taking direction/working alongside them in classrooms.
The volunteering Hydrox and I do couldn't be more rewarding. In this day and age, it's quite an honor to step into a classroom where you sit with your dog and interact with kids and that's all you focus on. It's you, your dog, and the children. To witness the connection, is quite emotional. I get so much joy out of it.
Thanks so much for letting Hydrox and I be volunteers in your organization SSR.
