Book Buddy program continues in August
The Animal Welfare League of Frederick County invites children (grades K-8) to read to rescued cats 12:30 to 4 p.m. Aug. 23. Cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice comforting. Children bring their own book(s) and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Reservations required. Space is limited. One child per 30-minute session. Visit www.awlfc.org for details.

Backup fosters are also needed when a dog doesn’t get along with others or a foster family has an emergency. Visit www.reachoutrescue.org for details.
