Meet the Staff: LiveWell Pet-A-Pups

LiveWell partners with a variety of local certified therapy dogs and their owners, known as “teams” each semester. Some of the events that teams have interacted with students, faculty and staff at this year have included Wellness-Palooza, Countdown Don’t Meltdown and Dogs De-Stressing for Final Exams. We invite owners of certified therapy dogs to contact our office to join our efforts to help bring more dogs to campus! Contact us at for more information.
