PAWS2RELAX

July 30, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

What better way to spend a lunch break than with a furry friend who will no doubt take the stress out of a busy day. It will be an opportunity to hug, cuddle, pet, visit and receive cold nose kisses, tail wags and lots of affection. It is just the right prescription for a hectic, busy day at work.

As the owner of BACB Unleashed, my mission is to create venues that can showcase and bring more attention to the beautiful animals that are available through organizations such as shelters and rescue groups, but today is the day that shelter dogs are “rescuing” workers, patients and visitors from the stress of their busy day.

It is well-known (and scientifically proven that interaction with a gentle, friendly pet has significant benefits.

Physical Health: lowers blood pressure; improves cardiovascular health; released endorphins that have a calming effect; diminishes overall physical pain and the act of petting produces an automatic relaxation response.

Mental Health: lifts spirits and lessens depression; decreased feelings of isolation and alienation; encourages communication; provides comfort; increases socialization; reduces boredom and lowers anxiety.
