The SPCA Dog Therapy program is coming back to the Law Library beginning Monday, December 2nd. Dog therapy is designed to be a fun stress-reliever for our busy students, a gift of some happy-go-lucky play with a furry friend as relief from studying. So take a break and let one of these trained, friendly dogs help you forget all about the law for a few minutes.
Our doggie “therapists” will be located on the fourth floor of the 200 McAllister building in the Library. Students are welcome to sign up for 10-minute stress break sessions. All dogs are friendly and trained and accompanied by experienced SPCA volunteers. Sign-up sheets and more information can be found at the Library circulation desk.
