“Doctor Pet” will make you smile – Therapy animals at HKBU Library

by Angela Wong on 2017-12-01T15:04:00+08:00 | Comments

Wednesday 29 November was an unusual afternoon at the Library. We had 25 dogs, one cat and a huge crowd of students with us on Level 3 of the Main Library.  The professional team of therapy pets from “Doctor Pet” paid a visit to us for a special session to help alleviate the stress of the busiest period of the semester when everyone is working hard on assignments and preparing for examinations.


We hope that this was a great way to put a different face on the Library:  to show students we care about their mental well-being. We hope that they were able to relax,  and relieve their assignment and examination jitters for a little while. The visit from Doctor Pet was an opportunity to take a quick break from studying.

Do you want the Library to re-run this event? Tweet at us (@hkbulibrary), check our Instagram (@hkbulibrary), or contact us on Facebook (@hkbu.lib) and don’t forget to check out the event pictures on Flickr!
