The Animal Rescue League of Berks County in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania has had dozens of kids in attendance each week to read to adoptable cats. It's a great way for the kids to improve their reading skills while providing comfort to cats awaiting a loving home.
The Reading Buddies Program has been a big success for both the kids and cats. The children find the cats non-threatening and a supportive audience, while the cats enjoy human interaction and the rhythmic, soothing sound of a child's voice.
The program has strengthened the bond the shelter has with the community and introduced new families to the shelter. This has lead to many more adoptions.
Not only do the kids love it, but it gives the cats socialization and play time they love, and increases their chances for adoption.
Well done ARL of Berks County - and all the kids in the Reading Buddies Program!
