Therapy Pets Help Stressed Students

Nursing student MacKenzie Iverson’s voice rose an octave as she greeted and cuddled a therapy dog Tuesday on Washington State University Spokane’s campus. “This is the best stress reliever ever,” Iverson said during a break in her final exams. The Spokane Humane Society brought five friendly dogs, a cuddly cat and a crate of 3-week-old kittens to WSU Spokane on Tuesday to give students a mental break during the intense end-of-year week. The activity was one of several planned by the Associated Students of WSU during finals week/Jody Lawrence-Turner, SR. More here.

Question: Don't you wish you have a therapy pet at work?
