Pet Hugs

Pet Hugs at UC Berkeley

The Pet Hugs program brings therapy dogs to campus to positively impact mood, stress, and connection for the entire UC Berkeley community.

In partnership with the Animal Rescue Foundation, UHS coordinates Pet Hugs events on campus. It is popular among many campus 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."
