Although early humans first sought to domesticate animals as a means of survival, animals have shifted to become companions as well. This love for pets is apparent among many student and faculty members. According to a survey sent to High School students and faculty March 22 to April 17 with 169 responses, 63.3% of the school community owns a pet. 

Whether improving morale or providing companionship, community members share their relationships with pets. Interact with the images below to read about each community member’s unique connection.
