Helping Animals and Children through Reading

If you like to play with cats and dogs and help with training and socializing, then consider being a volunteer!

If you like to mentor and assist children who may be shy, lacking self-confidence, or are uncomfortable verbally communicating, then volunteer for Woofs and Books!

Remember, as a mentor, you are
not  teaching the child how to read. Instead, you are facilitating the relationship between the animal and the child. The adoptable pet is the attentive, furry, non-critical audience, and the child is reading to the animal to overcome shyness and lack of self-esteem.

The property for Woofs and Books is in Noblesville, Indiana.

Initially, volunteers will be needed to assist with:

  • Property improvements, such as installing fencing, building rooms for the reading sessions, painting, and landscaping.
  • Planning fundraising events and applying for grants.
  • Building relationships with local schools,animal organizations, and the community.

Later, volunteers will be needed for:

  • Training and socializing the rescued animals.
  • Visiting local schools and libraries to facilitate reading sessions and market Woofs and Books.
  • Helping place the pets in loving, forever homes.
  • Maintenance of the facility.

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete our Volunteer Application. Your help is greatly appreciated!
