Children in grades 1-8 read to the cats as a way to improve their reading skills and gain confidence. The shelter animals can be a non-evaluative presence that can provide support and comfort to participants without judging them.

Sapsarees, shaggy-haired dogs long valued for their loyalty, were killed in large numbers by the Japanese military during the period of Japanese colonial rule, but have since made a comeback thanks to Ha Ji-Hong, a U.S.-educated geneticist who combined traditional breeding with advances in modern DNA technology.
