Dodge Elementary School students raising money for therapy dog who is the 'paw-fect fit'

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WKBW) — Students at Dodge Elementary School in Williamsville are raising money to help one member who help students when they are stressed.

Yeti, a husky mix, hangs out in his own office at Dodge Elementary, while serving as a therapy dog helping kids who need a break or a distraction.

Students read and write to him as a way to calm them down.

Head custodian Dan Steck started bringing Yeti to the school two years ago and Yeti is loved by everyone.

"He's really calm he likes all kids," Steck said. "He brightens the whole building up it's really important to have him in the building."

Yeti hasn't been able to come to the school as much because of some health issues.

He only has three legs.

The school is raising money to help him get a wheelchair or with any other health expenses.

Their goal is to raise $10,000 via their GoFundMe.
