Several furry friends visited Calgary’s Bow Valley College on Tuesday to comfort stressed-out students.
The Pet Access League Society (PALS) has had a partnership with Bow Valley for nine years, bringing their soon-to-be service dogs to campus every semester to help students find some peace.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, the dogs were in the ATB Hall on South Campus offering hugs and kisses.
“They’re interacting with these puppies and their peers,” said Dhruv Jani, a spokesperson for the students’ association at Bow Valley College.
He says that the program is always organized before the exams.
“Not only does this bring awareness to a great organization, but it also helps our students relax during a stressful time of their school year.”
According to Janie, the event is so popular that some students have suggested it be held every week or once a month.
“College is tough, exams are tough, so students are under pressure,” he said.
