Local News

Kids and dogs unite to make reading fun; it’s an unusual partnership, but one that is seeing some success already.  

The Erie Catholic School system partnered with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs to provide reading buddies in primary grades. The goal is to help kids focus, reduce anxiety, and give the kids something to look forward to.

There are plans to make therapy dogs available at other Erie Catholic schools.
