Pet a Pup and Reduce Your Stress
Are you looking to blow off a little steam and reduce your stress level? Do you want to talk to a friend who won’t judge you? Or, maybe all you need is a good game of tug. Whether you feel stressed or just want to play, make sure to visit the therapy dogs from Angels in Whiskers when they return to Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) on November 28th and 29th from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. in the College Union, Shasta Lounge (fireplace).
The Pet a Pup program is free and open to everyone to attend.
This is the third year of the program at Oregon Tech and Jim Pittman, Director of the Integrated Student Health Center at Oregon Tech, says that the program is always a hit. “We were looking for a way to help everyone alleviate the usual stress that comes with the end of the term. I read about the success other schools had with the program, so being a dog-lover myself, I thought it would be a great way for students to relax, laugh, and enjoy themselves. It’s a really positive way to relieve stress.”
Angels in Whiskers, Inc. is a grass-roots therapy dog organization in Klamath Falls, Oregon that is making its way through the doors of many facilities in the county. All dogs in the program are certified therapy dogs that have completed training. Angels in Whiskers, Inc. is a volunteer program which has grown to over 30 teams in the Klamath Falls area.
