On Saturday May 17, PAWS of CNY volunteer teams attended the “Get Pet-Riotic” event, a community outreach and information event co-sponsored by Recycle-a-Bull Bully Breed Rescue and Wanderer’s Rest Humane Association. The event promoted the adoption of dogs and cats looking for loving homes. PAWS of CNY was pleased to support the event and share information with the community about our Pet Assisted Wellness Services.
Over the past several semesters, the volunteer dogs at PAWS of CNY have formed a bond with the students at Syracuse University. During the annual “PAWS for Stress” event, one of four various de-stress events that PAWS of CNY has attended during the school year, the volunteer teams enjoyed a relaxing afternoon while helping students take a much-needed break from the pressures of the end of the semester.
PAWS of CNY volunteers recently attended a de-stress event for the students at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Foresty (SUNY ESF). The event was held indoors in Marshall Hall, due to rain, but the weather did not dampen the enjoyment of the event. For the students who were preparing for the stress-filled, year-end pressures that come along with the dreaded finals week, the de-stress event offered an opportunity to take a much needed break in the name of wellness.
