Lakefield Animal Welfare Society Puppies Bring Smiles to LCS Students

Lakefield College School students had a heartwarming surprise during their winter spirit week. As part of the festivities, the school arranged for a visit from the Lakefield Animal Welfare Society (LAWS), a local organization dedicated to rescuing homeless, abandoned, and injured animals in the community and finding adoptive homes for them.

During the visit, LAWS brought along a litter of adorable puppies for the students to cuddle and play with. The students (and staff!) were thrilled to spend time with the furry visitors, and the puppies seemed to enjoy the attention just as much.

The benefits of puppy cuddles go beyond just the warm and fuzzy feeling they provide. Research shows that spending time with animals can lower stress levels, reduce anxiety, and even boost immune function (John Hopkins Medicine). For teens who may be facing the pressures of academic and social demands, spending time with puppies can be a great way to take a break and recharge.

The visit from LAWS also provided an opportunity for students to learn more about the important work the organization does in the community. By connecting with local groups like LAWS, students can gain a deeper appreciation for the positive difference that community members are making in the lives of those around them.

Nearly all of the puppies who visited the school have since found homes. But one beagle/retriever mix, Chai, is still looking for a family. Visit the LAWS website to learn more! 

Overall, the visit from LAWS and the litter of puppies was a highlight of the winter spirit week for our students.
