Lamar University’s Gray Library hosted comfort dogs, Dec. 8. The dogs help calm students during the busy finals period. The dogs were on leashes in a partitioned area of the first floor.
The animals and their handlers are part of the Paws 4 Love Therapy Animals Group, a non-profit local chapter of the national organization Intermountain Therapy Animals that strives to bring animal-assisted therapy to schools, nursing homes, hospitals and other locations across Southeast Texas.
