MCFI's use of pet therapy has been getting lots of attention lately.
Animals can play a key role for Milwaukee-area kids with special needs, as described in the cover story of the March issue of Metroparent.
Wells Street Academy teacher Cathy Wolber, Health Heelers owner Laura Hey, Laura O'Brien and her therapy dog, Montana Rose, and MCFI Communications Director Nan Bialek were featured on WTMJ-TV's  Morning Blend last Wednesday morning, talking about the use of animal-assisted therapy at MCFI.
