With children back at school, 1 FUR 1 was able to reach 43% more children and seniors with disabilities compared to the previous month. We’re excited to have had the opportunity to help children transition into the new school year with the loving support of a furry, 4-legged friend by their side. The the canine teams in St. Louis focus of this month is to speak to students about the emotional responses we have to things that happen to us every day.
