Kids Make Friends With Shelter Dogs By Reading To Them
A dog shelter in Missouri, USA has started a program for fearful dogs which involves kids reading books to them. The Shelter Buddies program prepares kids before allowing them to read to dogs. After their training the kids sit in front of the locked dogs and read their favorite books to the shy dogs. The program directors were thinking of a way to rehabilitate the dogs and make them ready for adoption without any kind of physical contact. But the dogs are not the only ones getting the benefits from this program. The kids are also practicing their reading skills while also making a friend for life.
