Yes, the rumors are true. We are very excited to announce that LMC is participating in the NYC Department of Education’s comfort dog pilot initiative in partnership with the North Shore Animal League America. Bruno, a puggle (pug/beagle mix), has recently joined our school community. He is a small, friendly dog who loves being around children.
Bruno will spend most of his time in counseling sessions for those students who are interested in working with him, but he will also be slowly integrated into other activities at LMC. Please note that any students allergic or averse to working with Bruno will not have to do so – we have protocols in place to ensure that students are safe and comfortable here at LMC.
