Children and animals have a natural affinity for one another. Evidence shows that both derive many benefits from their interactions. The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum draws on this resiliency research, social and emotional learning, and human-animal interaction to guide their program, which has two goals: enhancing children’s resilience and social and emotional competence and promoting awareness of the desirability of shelter pets (or “Mutt-i-grees”).
This presentation will outline the basics of the Mutt-i-gree Curriculum itself, how and why it works, and the importance of its implementation.
