Pet Therapy of the Ozarks to bring stress relief to OTC students

On Monday, October 1, students at Ozarks Technical Community College will have a unique opportunity to alleviate some of the pressure of mid-term exams. Pet Therapy of the Ozarks will bring several of its animals to the OTC Springfield Campus for a “stress relief station” from 10 a.m. to noon.

The animals will be set up on the Student Plaza in the center of campus, outside the Norman K. Myers Center. In the event of rain, the stress relief station will move inside the building.

Based in Springfield, Pet Therapy of the Ozarks is a non-profit organization that offers emotional therapy and stress relief services for nursing homes, hospitals, schools, prisons and other facilities. For more information, visit
