A shelter dog’s best friend: Volunteer reads to dogs so they are not alone

A heartwarming photo of a woman reading to dogs at a local animal shelter has online viewers dabbing the tears out of their eyes, but hopefully motivating more people to volunteer at local animal shelters and rescues.

Woman reading books to dogs at a shelter

According to a Reddit poster named puglife123 who posted the picture stated: “This woman comes to my local humane society and sits in front of the dog’s cage and reads books to the dogs.” And if that isn’t touching or emotional enough, the woman is said to have been reading a book to Jade, a rescued pit bull, called Biscuit and the Little Pup, a primary reading book about a little lost puppy in a park.

Puglife123, volunteers as a dog walker praises the shelter for the excellent work they do trying to find new homes for the strays, the unwanted, and the past victims of cruelty. “You can do anything from dog walking, cat cuddling, to helping with the rabbits! I don’t get there as often as I would like because of work, but when I do it makes my day so much happier,” the volunteer explains and said when (her/his) two pugs died, going to the shelter was a way of being around dogs who needed help and companionship. There have been thousands of comments; almost everyone praising the woman’s kindness. The photo has been viewed over 3 million times.
