UPCOMING WEBINAR: BEST PRACTICES FOR HOSTING A COLLEGE STRESS RELIEF EVENT

When: Thursday May 28th 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time (1pm Eastern, noon Central, 11 am Mountain, 9 am Alaska, 7 am Hawai'i)

Paws to Relax before finals!  Presented by Nancy Lefkowitz, Pepperdine University

The Housing & Residence Life team at Pepperdine University, Malibu, CA has successfully run this event for the past five years as each semester ends. The program has grown to include Pepperdine's School of Law students and the Psychology Department recently expanded the event by conducting an in-depth research study.

Students love helping with the planning details from reserving VIP parking spots for the Pet Partners teams to preparing thank you goodie bags for the pets and their chauffeurs. Many students miss their families especially their dogs and look forward to seeing them when they head home after finals.

Learn why early planning pays off and consistent protocols are a must. Join us on Thursday May 28th at 10 am Pacific for this webinar on the best practices for hosting this college event for students, staff and faculty to reduce stress and enjoy the benefits of animal-assisted therapy.

Attend this free one-hour webinar Thursday May 28th. Register now

TEAM OF THE WEEK

Cincinnati VA "You made my day." April 20th marked the debut for the Cincinnati VA Hospital's therapy animal program. Handler Glenna Mockbee (middle) worked for 13 years to bring this program to fruition with the goal of giving back to veterans. On just their first visit, Pet Partners' therapy dogs Prince, Jonah and Baxter made an impact on many new friends at the VA hospital. At one point, the therapy dogs took the lead after an emergency had occurred and calmly comforted a patient. When things returned to normal, the patient told the dogs, "You made my day." We congratulate Therapy Pets of Greater Cincinnati and Cincinnati VA on their great success in developing this program for our veterans.
