Participate in our Virtual Book Buddies! This is the perfect volunteer opportunity for children and a way to sooth a shelter pet.
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! This is for beginning level readers and up, and it will be hosted weekly on Fridays from 2 - 3:30 PM.
Participants will sign up for a specific 10 minute segment. 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.

You will only be able to register 2 weeks out.
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.
