Seeing Eye Dogs Spread Joy on Campus

Seeing Eye Dogs Spread Joy on Campus

As part of Mental Health Awareness Month, there were plenty of smiles during the lunch periods on Tuesday, May 28 as six service dogs in training — Zola, Perry, Ingrid, Taleetha, Ella and Comet — visited campus to spread some happiness. The dogs were stationed on the Class of 2020 Quad, where they greeted students and faculty and instantly boosted spirits!

Zola, Perry, Ingrid, Taleetha, Ella and Comet are Seeing Eye dogs in training and were brought to campus by their handlers. 

The Seeing Eye is a philanthropic organization whose mission is to enhance the independence, and self-confidence of blind people through the use of Seeing Eye dogs. By having these service dogs on campus, we help with their socializing. Research shows that the simple act of petting a dog can provide both physical and mental health benefits.

Special thanks to MBS Upper School Counselor Barbara Smith for arranging the dogs’ visit as part of Morristown Beard School’s Mental Health Awareness Month activities.
