“As I sit here with my girl Summit curled up on my lap, I am in tears thinking about Charlotte.

Mental health is so important and if having a therapy dog at school will help one person make a different choice – that is success. Please know what you are doing is making a difference and I am so thankful.”

“The Charlotte’s Litter donation has truly made a difference for our therapy dog teams by helping us maintain our current R.E.A.D. programs and develop new one. Our partnerships with the NYC Department of Education and New York Public Library are the foundation of our organization. Our therapy dog teams love receiving Good Dogs, Great Listeners and The Dogs of Newtown. Once a team has completed the training and receives their R.E.A.D membership ID badge, we present them with these 2 beloved books.”

“There is so much research that suggests that the use of therapeutic animals is beneficial for learning self regulation and empathy.  These are skills that make our students better learners.  We are so fortunate to have this grant and these precious “four legged empathy ambassadors”  in our district.
