Compassionate Woman Reads ‘Biscuit and the Pup’ Aloud to a Rescue Dog at the Pittsburgh Humane Society

Woman Reading to Dog

A wonderfully compassionate woman reads the tale of Biscuit and the Pup to a rescue dog named Jade at the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society in Pittsburgh. According to redditor puglife123, the person who posted this heartwarming photo, the dogs at this shelter are cared for by dedicated volunteers.

I volunteer there doing dog walking! …I signed up to do it when my two pugs passed away, and it was my way of being around dogs. But, when I went to orientation the lady doing the orientation put it like this, a lot of people think the shelter is a sad place, but it’s really not, the animals being on the street or in a bad place is sad. Being in the shelter is (hopefully) the start of a new life for them. This particular humane society takes amazing care of the animals too, so that helps! …They always need volunteers! You have to go on their website and take a dog walking 101 quiz after reading their guidelines, and then someone contacts you to set up your orientation date. 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.
