SB City College brings in therapy dogs to de-stress students

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Therapy dogs are making their rounds at Santa Barbara City College days before finals week.

"Of all the many positive ways to support our students as they prepare for finals that we have tried, therapy dogs are by far the most popular," says Elizabeth Bowman, SBCC Library Director.

All for Animals, a nonprofit based in Santa Barbara, will bring in the furry therapists on Tuesday, November 29, from 1:00-3:00 p.m. outside the college's Luria Library on West Campus.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Santa Barbara City College for this special event," says Karen Lee Stevens, founder and president of All for Animals.

Many students and college staff members visited the dogs during their breaks.

"We're all stressing out and I think petting these dogs just helps us forget what's going on around us," said Gloria Catalan, a second year student at Santa Barbara City College.
