On Thursday, February 23, the CASE program received some very special furry visitors. As part of their end of the trimester PBIS reward, the CASE classrooms enjoyed a morning with Love on a Leash, a pet therapy program. Love on a Leash brings comfort, happiness, and healing people nationwide by using pet-provided therapy. This volunteer organization provides therapy services throughout the community. A therapy pet, most often a dog, is trained and certified with its owner as a team to provide comfort and stress relief to others in a variety of situations. Therapy pets are personal pets; they work as a team with their handler to provide comfort and happiness to others. Therapy pet teams volunteer in settings such as schools, hospitals, nursing homes, private homes – anywhere they are invited. Therapy pets may also help individuals achieve physical and educational goals; petting or walking with a dog may help increase mobility, and reading to an animal may build a child’s confidence. Our CASE students were able to pet these cute puppies, play with them, and of course get plenty of puppy kisses. Thank you to this wonderful organization for providing our kids with this amazing experience.
