Florida college now four-legged friendly

In Animal News on May 24, 2010 at 6:07 pm

Stetson University in Florida has introduced a program to convert one of the residence halls into a pet-friendly dormitory.

The 36 rooms will allow students to bring their dog or cat to college, with some restrictions of course.  Only dogs or cats are allowed, meaning that no exotic animals are permitted, and dogs must be less than 30 pounds. Most importantly, students must be able to provide adequate care and maintain control of their pets.

This is not the first program of its kind, as Stephens College in Missouri created their “Pet Floor” in 2007.  This does signal a change, though, as university administrators are recognizing the importance of the human-pet relationship and how it can help students deal with college life. –Brendan Quealy
