The Humane Society of Broward County’s Animal Assisted Therapy Program has teamed up with the Alvin Sherman Library at Nova Southeastern University for kids to enjoy an online Wags & Tales Mini- Storytime. The mini pre-recorded sessions will continue each Saturday through June, where kids will watch HSBC AAT volunteers reading to their therapy dogs on the library’s Facebook page.

According to Marni Bellavia, Manager of the HSBC AAT Program, “Children typically read to animal assisted therapy dogs at several Broward County libraries throughout the community. However, since all the libraries are closed, this is another way for the kids to enjoy reading in a fun way.”
In addition, the videos will be uploaded to the School Board of Broward County’s Canvas system, which is the current distance learning platform the students are taking classes on. Teachers will be able to access the videos for curriculum use.
The Humane Society of Broward County is a private, non-profit organization supported by donations from companies and people who want to help animals. The HSBC is not affiliated with any local or national organization with a similar name. To learn more visit www.humanebroward.com
