All Aboard the Mutt-i-grees Express!
This month, members of the Mutt-i-grees team traveled to Newtown, CT to bring Mutt-i-grees programming to students from Sandy Hook schools as part of a fun event hosted by Ben's Lighthouse, a foundation that was started after the Sandy Hook tragedy in 2012. The foundation was named in memory of six year old Ben Wheeler and his love of lighthouses and it supports the children of Newtown in a safe, nonviolent environment. Their mission aligns with the social and emotional learning themes we promote in the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum. As part of the event, North Shore Animal League America partnered with Companion Pet Rescue of Southbury, CT to bring adoptable dogs aboard the Mutt-i-grees Express, which was a blast for everyone involved!
