Book Buddies Program

Book Buddies

Readers from any level are invited to the shelter on scheduled Mondays to practice their literacy skills in each adoption room. Book Buddies help children improve their reading skills while also helping shelter animals by providing socialization and human interaction.

Reading to Shelter Pets Program

Children of all reading levels are invited to the shelter to read to pets in our adoption rooms. This program not only helps children with their literacy skills, but also helps provide socialization and human interaction for our adoptable animals. Pets find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing, and always love a good story. Reserving a spot is recommended. You can do so by visiting our signup genius:

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo for supporting the growth of literacy skills in our region’s residents.
