Pet Therapy - Canines on Campus

Pet Therapy is a special biannual event hosted by Campus Ministries' Center for Service and Social Justice to provide stress relief to students.  Held in late September and April, this event has drawn more than 1000 visitors and 40 dogs each time.  It is one of the most popular student events on campus.

If you are a University of Scranton staff or faculty member, alumni, student or parent of a current student of The University of Scranton, have a dog that is fully vaccinated (including kennel cough), gets along well with large crowds of people and other dogs, and you have the time available, we would love to have you! Our event is held inside a fenced area (with dogs on leashes) and all participants and dog owners must sign a waiver of liability to enter.  

Our next scheduled Pet Therapy date is Tuesday April 25, 2017 from 11:30am-1pm on the Dionne Green/DeNaples Patio.  In the event of rain, we will use our rain location in the Byron Center.  Registration on Royal Sync will open one month prior to the event.
