DOC was asked to come to Huntingdon College this past December for an event that was called ‘Pets on the Porch.” The purpose of this visit was to provide some stress relief for the students during the final exams of the Fall Semester. It was one of those events that just grew as the two day period unfolded.
According to Camilla Irwin, Director of Student Health Services, the students, staff, and faculty enjoyed our dogs so much and they are eagerly anticipating our return to Huntingdon for Spring Semester finals. Camilla reported that many students told her that the visits with our DOC dogs was one of the top campus activity of the year.
Easter Seals Dogs on Call will be returning to Huntingdon on May 5th and 6th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Our members are so looking forward to making this a semi-annual event!
