Fenway is in training for a young boy named Liam who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. When his training is done, Fenway will retrieve items that Liam has dropped, brace him and support him to keep him from falling, open and close doors for him and most of all provide Liam with the best friend he will ever have.

Rebel is an unconventional source of anxiety relief whose positive effects reach all Walpole students and the Walpole Community as a whole! Rebel quietly makes her presence known in a variety of situations. A student having a panic attack may just need Rebel to walk with them to class. Anger that could otherwise escalate to a fight can quickly be brought under control with Rebel’s calm demeanor.
