After a long day, sometimes there’s nothing better than coming home to the warmth and companionship of your faithful dog. As soon as you shake their paw, pet their head, and tell them your problems – all the day’s stress just melts away.
As our kids say goodbye to the carefree days of summer, they will once again face the stress that comes along with being a full-time student. Fortunately, as homework piles up, exams loom large, and papers are due – they know they can always count on our trusty facility dog Pongo to make them feel better!
When school starts back up, one of the busiest areas at Mercy Home during the evenings is our Learning Center. Filled with books, encyclopedias, magazines, and computers, this is where many of our kids find the resources they need to complete assignments. It’s also where the pressures of school can become overwhelming.
