Not long ago, we told you about a great program at the Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Pennsylvania called Book Buddies, which brings kids, reading, and shelter cats together. You don’t think we’d forget about the shelter dogs, do you? Introducing the Humane Society of Missouri’s Shelter Buddies Reading Program, which welcomes kids in to read to shelter dogs, bringing the dogs much needed comfort and socialization, and making them more adoptable.
Check out this heartwarming video about the program from NBC News. It’s amazing to see some of the shy dogs come around in the presence of the children.
