PLU Marketing & Communications

To spread cheer and relieve stress during Finals Week, Associated Students of Pacific Lutheran University is again partnering with volunteer organizations, including Therapy Dogs International, to bring certified therapy animals to campus May 19-22.

The therapy-pet program was a huge hit last semester, crowding PLU’s Red Square with hundreds of giggling, appreciative students and oodles of photogenic, patient pets—even one extra-fluffy therapy cat.

The pets—and their trainers—will set up stress-busting shop in the center of campus from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
