Reading Program Pairs Kids with Shelter Dogs
Through the Shelter Buddies Reading Program, kids ages 6 to 15 volunteer to read aloud to shy shelter dogs. The activity helps to socialize puppies while fostering a love of reading and animals in kids.
The program, called Shelter Buddies Reading Program pairs up youngsters with shelter dogs. The kids get to read to the dogs without judgement and the dogs are able to learn social skills, prepping them for a hopeful adoption. (Mashable)
