"Pet Away Life Stress"
Students love our PALS Program: Pet Away Life Stress! Through Animal Assisted interactions, the PALS program offers an opportunity for stress reduction for our student community. Animal Assisted interactions are consistently shown to decrease anxiety and feelings of self-reported loneliness. Animal Assisted interactions have also been shown to reduce blood pressure, lower heart rate, and reduce stress hormones in their human friends.
We would also like to thank our community partners who share their furry friends: Partners in Restorative Animal Assisted Therapy (PRAAT)
