UB's Health Sciences Library began bringing therapy dogs on
campus in December 2011. The effort has grown to include coffee,
snacks, soothing music, chair massages and other relaxation
methods. More than 800 students participated last semester.
UB is working with Therapy Animals of Western New York, or
TAWNY, an organization that promotes the healing powers of dogs and
other animals, to bring the dogs on campus.
