PAWS Pals (Practice A+ Writing Skills)

Would your elementary age kids like to be a pen pal with a furry animal at the shelter? If so, we have the program for you!

Data shows that children who show compassion for animals have a higher self-esteem, less stress, and increased cognitive development. This program fosters that compassion by partnering with the school to implement programs for students from Pre-k to 4th grade to write letters to the animals in our shelter.

Simply write a letter to one of our adoptable cats or dogs, send it via snail mail to Cabot Animal Shelter at 2951 S. 1st St. in Cabot, and one of our furry friends will respond! Make sure to include your email address in case our fur friends learn how to write emails!

ARFF (Arkansans Reading for Furry Friends)

Cabot Animal Support Services is proud to work with the Cabot Public Library on the ARFF program. If you would like to spend some time working on your reading skills by reading to a dog or cat who needs some attention, fill out our information sheet. We will get in touch with you about the next steps.


Elementary Education Program – When children learn about pet safety, animal care, adoption, and spay/neuter, they are more likely to enjoy healthy relationships with animals throughout their lives. Also, educating future animal owners is instrumental in curbing animal overpopulation and cruelty. When we create a better generation of people, we will create better lives for animals now and in the future.
