Purdue Veterinary Medicine's Pets for People club held its annual therapy animal team evaluations November 18 for those wishing to register their personal pets as therapy animals via the national organization Pet Partners. This year, the club had eight teams up for evaluation, and all eight successfully passed! They now will be joining the club's other teams as they volunteer at libraries, nursing homes, schools, and more. Congratulations to these students on the training and dedication they put into the process:
