Pilot program with Renaissance Charter School  St. Lucie West. Starting in 1 – 2 kindergarten classes and if successful will hopefully go school wide in the future. The dogs will give the kids a snuggle buddy while learning how to read. The dogs provide comfort and a nonjudgmental audience. We will also have the opportunity to educate the students about proper dog-kid interactions in an effort to reduce future bite related incidents as most incidents can be prevented with knowledge and supervision. Being advocates for Pit Bulls is an important part of the LARC mission. This program allows us to provide information about Pit Bulls which will hopefully break stereotypes and prevent or ease any unnecessary fears at a young age. Fun projects will be integrated into the program to get the children excited and interactive.
