Pet Your Stress Away

By Hilary Broman

Students are invited to take a break from their week eight stress and go pet dogs at Montoya campus.
Therapy Dog Thursday is scheduled to take place on Thursday, July 6th from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM, in Building H, room 126.
The main mission of the event is to help CNM students let go of anxiety as they prepare for finals, said Daniel Hay, Library Circulation Specialist.
Hay will also be on hand to inform students of other helpful services and resources, he said.
“Studies have shown the stress-relieving benefit that animals have on people,” Hay said.
The dogs that will be at the event are specially trained therapy dogs.
The dogs and volunteers are from the Southwest Canine Corps of Volunteers.
The therapy dog event is the most well attended event at the library, Hay said.
This is a recurring event and it takes place at Montoya, Main and Westside libraries throughout the year.
