Therapy Animals

Now Therapy Dog Tuesdays + Therapy Cat Wednesdays!

Our Therapy Animal program aims to build community through stress relief activities, and raise awareness of mental health and wellness resources on campus. Studies show animals can help relieve anxiety, and just petting a dog or cat can lower your blood pressure. We hope you will come out to pet one of our visiting therapy animals!

Connect with SF State Cares on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram to stay up to date on Therapy Animal dates and locations, as well as other wellness related activities.
