The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum is such an important component of the Mutt-i-grees Movement. The Curriculum is an innovative program that builds on children’s affinity for animals and highlights the unique characteristics and desirability of Mutt-i-grees®, or shelter pets. The Curriculum teaches social and emotional skills and is unique in its bridging of humane education and the emerging field of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum was developed by the Animal League, in collaboration with the Yale University School of the 21st Century, and was graciously funded by The Cesar Millan Foundation.
