"Paws" to Refresh During Exams

After the success of a mid-term trial run, the Mae Hilty Memorial Library will be sponsoring TCC Therapy Dog Days during finals to provide students some much needed stress relief during exams.

Two certified dogs and their owners from Faithful Paws Pet Therapy of Houston will be in front of the LRC from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. next Tuesday, April 15 and Thursday, April 17 for students to interact, hug and love on the dogs as needed. We can look forward to a golden retriever and schnauzer on Tuesday and a sheltie and a golden retriever on Thursday.

We are very excited about this project and hope to see many of you there "paws"ing to refresh for exams!
