Food for Thought

Health and Wellness Presentation Series

  • When: Wednesday, November 16th from 11:30am - 12:30pm
  • Where: Bldg. #24, Room 201-203
  • What:  Caitlin Turner McAuliffe, TheraPets Coordinator with the ARL of Iowa, will present on "Therapy Dogs versus Service Dogs". 

Animal lovers already know how good it feels to interact with their pet. Leveraging this therapeutic power pets have has become a vital tool in treating a variety of medical conditions, along with relieving stress and improving quality of life!

So, service/therapy/support animal…they’re one in the same? Not at all. Each of these animals does very different (yet equally important) work from the others and the terms, as similar as they may sound, are not interchangeable. 

The Animal Rescue League of Iowa's TheraPets program certifies a pet and their owner, as a team, to visit people in our community who can benefit from animal companionship.
