This is truly amazing!
If you’ve ever had the chance to volunteer at an animal shelter you know that it’s truly a rewarding, but sometimes heartbreaking experience. I volunteer at my local shelter normally once a week and sometimes it’s heartbreaking to see some of the animals brought in who are so full of anxiety. It often takes time to work with these animals to help make them comfortable and calm which is important not only for the animal’s health, but because no one will want to adopt an animal that is showing signs of anxiety.
A new ‘Shelter Buddies Reading Program’ has been launched to enlist young kids read to nervous and anxious shelter dogs to help calm them and ease their anxiety.
