Book Buddy Program

Book Buddy

Children in grades 1-8 who are able to read at any level are invited to the shelter to read to the cats in our adoption room.

This program will help children improve their reading skills while also helping the shelter animals by providing socialization and human interaction. Cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing. To participate in this program you MUST reserve a time slot so we can ensure we have space and volunteers ready to assist you and your child(ren). Time slots are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4pm to 6pm.

Please email this completed form to kristik@humanesocietyhbg.org to schedule an appointment. Children that show up without a reserved time slot will not be able to participate in the program.

How Can I Help Homeless Animals in My Community Today?

Currently our greatest need is canned food for both dogs and cats! Our cats prefer pate but the pups aren't picky! In addition, we could use some Clorox Wipes to help maintain a safe, clean, and healthy environment for all the sheter's residents.

Check out HSHA's Amazon Wish List for more specific needs.

We have several dogs and cats that are looking for a foster home.  If you think you may be able to help, please visit our Fosters Needed page.
