Lubbock ISD: National Therapy Animal Day celebration on Saturday

Lubbock ISD is hosting its third annual National Therapy Animal Day Celebration on Saturday morning in honor of the annual recognition to bring awareness to therapy animal programs.

The event will feature dog training demonstrations, vendor booths, face painting, dog and human treats, and more. Lubbock ISD’s Muttley Crew handlers will be available to answer questions and introduce guests to their therapy dogs.

Lubbock ISD’s Muttley Crew began five years ago with three teams at one campus and has grown to now include 64 teams with 75 dogs. In addition to their daily work and assistance with crisis events across the state, they also participate in monthly training opportunities and community outreach.

The celebration is from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 20 at Overton Elementary School, 2902 Louisville Ave. The event is planned for the courtyard but will be moved to the gym in the event of inclement weather.
