AIM Academy & Kelly

Facility Dog

Kelly was placed at AIM Academy in Conshohocken in March 2017. She worked there every school day helping kids with many different tasks related to learning. She helped in both occupational and speech therapy sessions. In addition, she provided an overall calming presence to students at the school. 

Kelly’s primary handler, Mike Dunn, moved on from his role as college counselor at AIM and relocated to Colorado in the summer of 2021. Kelly couldn’t let him go without her, so they headed across the country together. They are happily living in the mountains and we are so happy for her.
