When the Humane Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania was recently helped by seven Girl Scouts of Troop 36062, they received a varied mix of the usual items that get donated to the shelter. The troop donated valuable items, like food, toys, and other important supplies. They had no idea that the girls would also introduce them to a new reading program, too.

Organizations that team up succeed better when alone.

Representatives from Girl Scouts of Troop 36062 helped the Humane Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania launch a reading program for its shelter dogs. In the Shelter Buddies Reading Program, animals are given treats while volunteers read stories to them. Research has shown that reading to animals helps calm them down and makes the reader feel better, too. It’s a win-win situation.

Key Takeaways:

The Humane Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania is teaming up with the girl scouts to get kids reading.
The Shelter Buddies Reading Program allows kids to spend time with the animals and read to them.
Participants feel good about the opportunity to help the animals.
