Literacy Education Assistance Pups


Literacy Education Assistance Pups,

P.O. Box 50

Lewes DE 19958

We are a dedicated group of volunteers, based in Lewes, Delaware, who strive to increase the quality of reading education for the students in our community through the use of trained therapy dogs. The goal of the L.E.A.P. program is to improve the literacy skills of children and grow their enthusiasm for reading by using therapy dog teams (dog/owner) as literacy mentors. The presence of a L.E.A.P. dog creates an inviting and motivating reading environment. L.E.A.P. dogs are nonjudgmental, comfortable, and FUN!  Reading sessions take place in local schools, libraries, and other settings.

Children can read to our specially trained dogs and their handlers.

There is no judgement, no criticism, and tons of tail wagging fun.
