Pet Partners of Sun City

Pet Partners aims to improve human health and well-being through the human-animal bond through their Read with Me and Walk with Me programs.

How do they help GISD students?

By pairing students with trained therapy animals, the Read with Me program increases a student's love for reading and confidence in reading aloud and the Walk with Me program is designed to relax students and increase attentiveness in class.

"The handlers & dogs get such joy from working with the students and staff at GISD. Seeing the smiles on the faces of the students when they complete a book while reading to the dog or giving the dog proper commands while walking them through the school is amazing."
