The LGYC Hosts Puppy Therapy Event (Photos)

by Wilma Wei & Sasha Ryu

With finals and AP-testing approaching fast, stress levels at LGHS have been higher than ever. At times like these, a moment of relaxation can be crucial for an overwhelmed student. That’s why, on Mon. April 29, the Los Gatos Youth Commission collaborated with Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) to host a puppy therapy event at LGHS. 

During the event, students were able to cuddle, pet, and play with five different service dogs. The perfect opportunity to de-stress before testing season, the event was a huge success!
