Pet Therapy of the Ozarks is a program that offers certified service animals to come to schools, nursing homes, hospitals, and other facilities.
They started doing this in the library as a way to try and relieve students of stress that they may feel at the end of a semester.
“We had seen some articles about colleges doing it and we know how stressful the end of the year can be for students,” librarian Melody Netzer said.
This is the third year in a row they have visited. They came Thursday, December 12th during lunch hours. Last year they implemented tickets to try to not overwhelm the dogs.
“It is free and the only reason we do that is so we don’t overwhelm the puppies,” Netzer said.
Pet therapy is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to get out some stress or who just loves petting cute dogs.
