Pete's Pet Posse (Pet Therapy)
Let's celebrate our favorite furry friends!

 

Pete's Pet Posse is one of OSU's hidden treasures. It is the nation's most comprehensive, university-based pet therapy program with more than 50 dog/owner/handler teams working on four OSU campuses as part of our America's Healthiest Campus initiative. 


The pet therapy teams bring joy and celebration to the campus and a little bit of home for students often stressed with grades, tests, and life changes. Pet therapy teams also work with University Counseling in times of crisis when the dog's unconditional love reaches hearts in ways humans cannot. These dogs have made their way into the very heart of OSU making us smile and helping us cry in difficult times. 


"As a physician, I know animals play a positive role in people's health. There is something about animals that make people happier and healthier. We always thought they did, but there is actually scientific research to support that idea."

Kayse Shrum, D.O., President, Oklahoma State University



In its short nine years, Pete's Pet Posse has made incredible strides while being self-funded. Your gift can help offset a variety of maintenance costs including miscellaneous items such as vests, collars, leashes, backpacks, shirts, trading cards, and additional expenses for each pet therapy team. These items are needed during therapy visits to clearly identify therapy pets.
