Beginning Readers read to pets at Salt Lake County Animal Services.
Participate in our Virtual Book Buddies! This is the perfect volunteer opportunity for children and a way to sooth a shelter pet, from the comfort of your home. Space is limited and registration is required.
How Book Buddies Works:
Join us virtually at Salt Lake County Animal Services for a 10 minute reading session with an animal at the shelter on Mondays between 3:30-5 PM! This is for beginning-level readers and up.
Upon registration, the participant will receive an email with a Zoom link for the upcoming session. Parents, please help your child log into the meeting a few minutes before their scheduled time.
The program will help children improve their reading skills AND will help the shelter pets with socialization. Animals find the rhythmic sounds of a voice very soothing. Similar programs at other shelters across the country have seen the benefits the program has to offer.
