Helping Students, One Dog at a Time
In partnership with the NYC Department of Education, the Mutt-i-grees program kickoff was a huge success! Research has proven that the human-animal bond enhances students’ social and emotional competence by reinforcing skills such as empathy, cooperation, and ethical decision-making. The launch of this cutting edge initiative linking children and shelter pets will not only save more pet’s lives but improve children’s social and academic development.
