Story Time with Shelley and the Shelter Animals

Life in a shelter is incredibly stressful for dogs and cats. Reading to our animals helps to lower stress levels, calm and soothe especially fearful animals as well as improve their human animal interactions by providing them with consistent positive interactions with people.
