Do your children enjoy visiting the MHSPCA? Would you like them to keep up with their reading skills over the summer? Why not join the Book Buddies Program!
Book Buddies is a volunteer program for children ages 6-11 (with a parent/caregiver) who can read at any level. Children can come to the MHSPCA with their favorite book, or can borrow one from our library, and read to a cat, dog or bunny.
Besides helping children gain confidence with reading, reading to shelter animals has also proven to reduce their anxiety, assist with socializing the animals, and increases their adoptability!
Register by coming in to the shelter and signing up at the front desk.
