Stetson Student Veterans Organization, Animal Legal Defense Fund, co-sponsored a program about using dogs in the military
Stetson’s Student Veterans Organization and Student Animal Legal Defense Fund chapter co-sponsored a film presentation on Feb. 28 about using dogs in the military.
Stetson Law students, along with dogs “James” and “Dora,” attended a screening of Always Faithful. “Dora” is a registered therapy dog trained by animal law expert Peter Fitzgerald, a professor at Stetson.
The documentary, directed by cinematographer Harris Done and produced by Academy Award-winning filmmaker James Moll, tells the story of U.S. Marine Corps dog teams serving on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Stetson recently initiated a popular therapy dog program to help students manage stress during exam time, which includes visits from therapy dogs trained by Stetson faculty and alumni.
