Green Chimneys students delighted Swiss Re employees by demonstrating our Dog Interaction Program at a recent event at their Armonk headquarters. And it was our honor, literally. The occasion celebrated Swiss Re’s Charity of the Month: Green Chimneys! Swiss Re has been a valuable corporate partner for nearly 15 years. They have provided funding, supported our eco-friendly events and best of all each year their enthusiastic employees volunteer on our farm, working tirelessly on countless tasks. We are grateful for Swiss Re’s loyalty.

The program has been a huge success for our children and canine graduates. To date, virtually all of our 40+ canine graduates have been adopted. Our children have demonstrated improvements in their behavior and gained a sense of responsibility and increased self-esteem – a win-win!
