Pet Love is a program that brings certified therapy dogs onto the University of Chicago Campus once a quarter for you to engage with. As nonjudgmental, inexhaustible, fountains of love and loyalty, animals are natural vehicles for providing support and companionship to you.
Similarly structured programs have been shown to improve mental and emotional health as well as overall quality of life. Research has shown that interaction with such pets can release endorphins that have a calming effect and help lower your stress level. Additionally, Pet Love offers you an opportunity to socialize, lower anxiety, reduce loneliness, and provide a healthy outlet for positive touch.
All of our programs are completed for the academic year. Pet Love will return in Fall Quarter, 2014.
