Media

ORONO - Students at the University of Maine were able to put down their pencils, and take a breather from the stress of finals this evening at the Doris Twitchell Allen Community Center.

The organization has 25 animal-therapy teams across the state of Maine.

 

Tonight they partnered with UMaine to alleviate academic stress on students during dreaded finals week.

 

“They have programs throughout the state focused on libraries and elementary school, afterschool programs for both high school and college students, but also working with the elderly and getting into nursing homes,” says Stacey Coventry of Silent Sidekicks.

 

Events like this one support Silent Sidekicks mission, to enrich people's lives and promote health and happiness through positive experiences with animals.

 

For those who missed tonight's session, there will be one more Wednesday night from 6 to 8.
