There are 4 comments on Therapy Dog Auggie Makes an Impact at SARP

  1. Thank you for sharing Auggie’s important work, Joel. Dogs (I have one sleeping by the fire/woodstove and another snoozing on a giant pillow) enrich our lives. So do cats. Next article, cats! (Then pigs, cows, goats . . .) Thx for a lovely article.

  2. Thank you for sharing this! It’s not only a great way to show the benefits of animals for humans, but also to let students, faculty, and staff know that SARP is safe, approachable and there to help them.
