Children and shelter dogs: It’s pretty much the definition of a feel-good story, right?

Absolutely! That’s why we’re bringing you this heartwarming blast-from-the-past of one of the earliest news stories featuring young children reading to shelter dogs at the Humane Society of Missouri, featured on NBC Nightly News.

Given recent research showing that both human interaction and listening to audiobooks reduce stress in pets in shelters, this seems like something that will do good for animals even while it’s making us feel good.

Have a great weekend, and enjoy this #FeelGoodFriday moment!
