Golf Scramble : Starting Up
About Woofs and Books 

Woofs and Books strives to help children and animals through reading.

Woofs and Books will rescue and provide shelter to cats, dogs, and rabbits; ensure they are vaccinated and spayed/neutered; and provide training for the dogs.  Once the dogs are trained, Woofs and Books will visit schools and libraries surrounding Indianapolis, IN to facilitate reading/literacy sessions with small groups of children or individuals and their new furry friend. These reading sessions are free.

Children who are shy, lack self-confidence, or have difficulty verbally communicating benefit the most from the sessions. When the child reads aloud to his/her attentive, non-critical, furry audience, the child is less stressed, is not afraid to make reading mistakes, and begins to enjoy reading. 

Woofs and Books will primarily work with children ranging in age from 5 to 12-years-old.  During these reading sessions, the children are not taught how to read; instead, literacy is emphasized.

There is numerous data available detailing the benefits to the child when participating in these reading programs, such as improved:

1. grades
2. class participation
3. self-confidence
4. compassion and respect for animals

During the reading sessions, books promoting pet adoption and  responsible pet ownership will be selected.

In addition to the child benefiting from the reading sessions, the animal, previously abandoned or surrendered, will become accustomed to new environments and children, obey commands from others, and enjoy playing with different people.  All of these activities should improve the pet's chance of being adopted. 

Woofs and Books is a newly formed organization and is federally tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  The facility is located in Noblesville, IN.

Volunteers are always needed and greatly appreciated!

Golf Scramble

by Miranda Martin on 11/02/11

Woofs and Books' inaugural golf scramble was on 10/08/2011 at Saddlebrook golf course. 5 teams participated and we had a lot of fun!! Most of the men donned purple or pink skirts at the "skirt hole" in order to tee off from the ladies tees.  The men looked pretty in pink! The "drinking hole" was also popular since Washington Apple shots were available to the men so they could tee off from the ladies tees. The caveat is they had to drink the shot of alcohol before they teed off.

Sponsors and local businesses provided raffle prizes, items for the goody bags, and boxed lunches. Woofs and Books greatly appreciated their support.

It is Woofs and Books' goal to grow the golf scramble outing each year.  The next outing will most likely be held in the summer of 2012 prior to the start of the school year so more players can participate. For the first golf outing, it was a great success and the 5 teams were a lot of fun. Thank you for participating!
