Therapy pets make stop at Cridersville school.

Posted: Updated:

Cridersville elementary students are learning about helping others with a visit from some very special guests.

Meet Cherokee, Orian and Sadie. All three are therapeutic pets visiting nursing homes and hospitals. Students at Cridersville are raising money through their mini marathon next week for Paws for Purple Hearts, a program that has veterans training service dogs for other vets. Friday they learned about the work all three of these animals play in a person's therapy and the reaction to a mini horse walking into their room.

Sadie the Golden doodle is no stranger to Cridersville students as she makes a visit once a week to meet with special needs students.
