Pet a puppy and be happy! You've done it. We've all done it. The Pre-Vet Club at Eastern Michigan University believes petting a puppy is therapeutic in times of great stress. What's more stressful for a college student than final exams?

The club will hold it's semi-annual "Finals Stress Relief Pet-Puppy Day on Tuesday.

The group says puppies will be available for petting from 11am to 3pm tomorrow in the Rock Garden of the Mark Jefferson Science Complex. 

The event, while free, will also prove beneficial to an area animal shelter.

There is no charge to pet the puppies, but a donation jar will be available and the money raised will be dedicated to care for animals in need.
