These children are at the Humane Society of Missouri brushing up on their reading skills with an attentive audience of shelter dogs. The animals in the "Shelter Buddies" program are either overexcitable and in need of a calming influence or require work with humans to build up their trust for them. These sweeet, earnest children are the perfect people with whom the canines can get their feet wet to that end. The Humane Society's goal is to make the dogs more likely to be adopted, and thus far they feel that the program has been beneficial.
