Virtual Book Buddies

Presented by Salt Lake County Animal Services 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.
