Pet Love

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.

Our upcoming Pet Love event will take place on Tuesday, November 22nd from 11:30am-1:00pm in McCormick Tribune Lounge of Reynolds Club.
