THS Pets

We love our pets at The Harris School

The Harris School uses animals as part of the therapeutic approach.

Pets provide:

  • increased sensitivity and awareness of feeling and needs of others-both animals and humans
  • a sense of responsibility
  • the opportunities to see, feel, touch and make connections
  • less tension in the classroom

Our pets include Buddy, a white, shaggy Schnoodle; Gerbie, a white dwarf rabbit; fish and a turtle.
