The Counseling department at Inver Hills Community College, in partnership with North Star Therapy Animals, is holding the first-ever Virtual Therapy Dog Visit Wednesday, December 9, 2020, via Zoom.

Offered to help everyone de-stress before heading into finals week, the Virtual Therapy Dog Visit features two time slots: noon to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Both time slots use the same Zoom link. Students, staff and faculty are welcome to join during all or part of the therapy-dog sessions:

  • Denise Cochran with Sonny: Noon – 1 p.m. session
  • Susan Groth with Bailey and Easton: Noon – 1 p.m. session
  • Judy Zerby with Sasha: 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. session
  • Susan Goll with Beatrice: 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. session

“This has always been a super-popular event when we are on campus,” said Nicole Bietz, Inver Hills counselor, “and we are hoping the therapy dogs can still bring joy in a virtual setting. Bring your own pet to join and connect with other pet owners, or just log in by yourself and enjoy some of the adorable therapy dogs from North Star Therapy Animals.”
