Meet Fuego, STRIVE Prep Federal's furry staff member who is providing our students with the emotional support they need

December 02, 2021
By Sully Barrett

This is Fuego, the emotional support animal at STRIVE Prep - Federal that quickly became an integral part of the school staff.

Fuego joined the STRIVE Prep - Federal family in October 2020, after a tough year for the school staff and students.

The school's social worker, Nina Muller, received Fuego from Freedom Service Dogs, a Denver-based nonprofit that provides service and therapy dogs for people with disabilities and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

 

“At first, I was nervous that I would not get a therapy dog because the waitlist for a dog is lengthy at Freedom Service Dogs. But when I got the call that I was matched with a dog, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh! He’s a very quirky fellow, and he’s pretty much his own person. He's very much his own creature,” Muller told the Rocky Mountain PBS.
