Many colleges use animal therapy to help students relieve stress.

People love pets. There are many health benefits they afford people, and college students are no exception. In fact, many colleges are adopting pet therapy programs to help reduce student stress, loneliness, and improve their overall mental health. Our team recently published a guide to highlight the many benefits of on-campus pet therapy programs, detail exactly what they entail, and how students can volunteer to bring animal therapy to their school. You can check out the full guide here:  Animal Therapy on College Campuses.
