Developed in partnership with Yale University and North Shore Animal League America, the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum is designed to teach to the whole child. Enhancing students’ social and emotional competence, they learn critical skills that are the foundation of academic and life-long success. Viewing life through the lens of rescue pets’ students develop empathy, learn what it is to have resiliency and make ethical decisions. These skills help students to move beyond themselves and care about others, animals, the environment – the world.
