Want to volunteer and catch up on your reading? Come on by to the shelter! Volunteers will sit in chair or cushion outside the animal kennel and read aloud for 30 minutes. Reading Buddies trains socialization and good manners for the pets knowing that home life does not need to be all play and all attention on the pets.
