Pet Hugs

Pet Hugs at UC Berkeley

Pet Hugs brings therapy dogs to campus to positively impact mood, stress and connection for students, staff and faculty.

In partnership with the Animal Rescue Foundation, UHS coordinates a Pet Hugs event once a month. Popular with many students and campus and community members, we have overheard comments like:

  • "My day just got better."
  • "I've been so stressed out. I feel a lot better now."
  • "I miss my dog so much. I love being able to pet this puppy."

If you missed an event, get a virtual pet hug through our many photo albums on Facebook!
