UNLEASH YOUR LOVE

The Description

With your donation, I will purchase a puppy to raise and train as a therapy dog at my school.  

Dogs are a bottomless pit of love. They forgive and forget so easily. They show us an unconditional love that surpasses what we can offer each other. Our Kaiser students need this example of support and love that a therapy dog is trained to give to all. No judgment is present. No matter your color, social standing, intelligence, or mood, the therapy dog shows love and acceptance.

This will be a journey that I want to embark on to make Kaiser a model school for what can be one of the most positive experience in an elementary school in Klein.

 

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal I will find a way to cover the additional expense.

Unleash Your Love Update

June 3, 2018

I want to thank everyone who has contributed, shared, commented, and is excited about having a therapy dog at Kaiser for the faculty, staff, and students.  

After a lot of research, talking to trainers, talking to breeders, and asking advice from my family and friends, we have decided on a puppy to start training to be a certified therapy dog.

I am attaching a picture of Banks.  He is named after the amazing Ernie Banks, from the Chicago Cubs.  We want Banks to bring the positive energy to school that Ernie Banks brought to people he came in contact with.

Please consider giving, sharing, and commenting!

Amy,
I've always admired your "go-getter" quality of seeking out individual challenges. Even more so I have benefited from watching you love your family and develop such deep relationships with your girls. This project combines both of those strengths! It is heartwarming to see your share your gifts and talents with your students. I'm excited for you! I'm excited for them! Here's to making a huge success!
In Him, Eunice

About the Creator

I teach Physical Education at Kaiser Elementary in Houston, TX. It is a Title 1 school with 92% of the students receiving free and reduced lunch. I am fortunate to teach every student in the school! A therapy dog would be used in the PE class to teach lessons in self-esteem, responsibility, unconditional love, and basic animal care.
