"Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers." 

Harry S. Truman​

The mission of Literacy for Companionship is to educate and empower children with the skills

and confidence necessary to be good readers while helping them understand the importance of

showing animals compassion and empathy.

"My three kids and I love Literacy for Companionship. From reading to the animals at our local shelter to the summer reading program, it's a great organization that's made a positive impact on our family. Nurturing kids' love for reading while helping them show compassion for doesn't get much better than that!"

- Christy L. | Fremont, IN

"Reading to animals is something that I have been doing for 2 years now. It's a program that lets you read to animals at the shelter to help them feel comfortable. I've read to cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, and small animals. I even get a prize from the treasure chest when I fill up my punch card. The program is run by a very nice lady named Angie. I love going every month."

 - Caleb, 11

"I have been in LfC for a little over a year now, before I was in LfC I didn't read that much. Ever since I joined LfC I like reading more and I love the animals at the animal shelter, and a few months ago we adopted a cat at the animal shelter! Our cat's name is Miah and I love her! Make sure to support LfC and if you can adopt an animal at the shelter, you should!"
