All upcoming visits are cancelled until further notice. Please follow us on Twitter and Instagram (@unthsclibrary) for updates and photos from our Paws at Lewis Library therapy teams.

Established in 2013 and offered monthly, Paws brings therapy animal groups into the library to provide a relaxing experience for the UNTHSC community. As use of animal assisted therapy (AAT) increases, programs like Paws at Lewis Library help prepare students and practitioners to encounter and integrate these groups into practice settings.
