Tales for Tails: Volunteers Read To Dogs, Cats At Shelter During Fireworks

July 6, 2019

Ten-year old Jubilee Lampron of Cantonment spent her Fourth of July night with about 75 other volunteers reading to the dogs and cats at the Escambia County Animal Shelter to help keep them calm as fireworks boomed.

The animal shelter hosted Tales for Tails for two hours Thursday night.

“I felt like it was important to read and talk to the¬†shelter¬†dogs because they needed a comforting distraction from the loud noises of the fireworks,” Jubilee said. “They are already in an unfamiliar environment so I wanted to spend my Fourth of July loving on them and giving them good memories. They were all so sweet and I hope people come down and find a new family member.”

Jubile was joined by her mother, Miranda Lampron, during the event. The family adopted their dog Liberty five years ago on July 3.

    What a wonderful program, and thank you to all the volunteers that took part.
    To Jubilee: At only ten years old you are setting a good example for some many. Great job!

    This is such a wonderful program. These poor animals are so scared of the loud noises. Thanks to you all for making them feel safe.

    Very awesome to see this program. Those animals are wonderful and deserve the very best. So cool that kids are being taught how important it is to treat the creatures with respect and love. This will help socialize them and find their forever homes. Good job ECAS and all those who volunteered.

    That is beyond awesome. And to even have children involved. I wish I would’ve known about it but my problem would be I’d want to take all of them fur babies home.
