Through Animal Assisted interactions, the PALS program offers an opportunity for stress reduction for our student community. Animal Assisted interactions are consistently shown to decrease anxiety and feelings of self-reported loneliness. Animal Assisted interactions have also been shown to reduce blood pressure, lower heart rate, and reduce stress hormones in their human friends!
