Gabriel’s Angels offers a safe space for at-risk students to learn

The Arizona Republic visited Aurora Day School to highlight the great work our students and Gabriel’s Angels are doing. Gabriel’s Angels is a nonprofit which provides animal-assisted activities which involve dogs and other animals in recreational and educational programs. Over the course of 18 weeks, students spend 15-20 minutes a week reading with the dogs which leads to increasing their confidence in a safe space where our students thrive.

“Zane used to struggle with reading, but when he started working with Michelle and Caymus, all of a sudden, he really blossomed.”
–Robin Puckett, an Aurora school therapist
