UAT Students Take Time to Relax and Indulge in ‘Puppy Love’

Amidst the whirlwind of academic pursuits and technological endeavors at UAT, the unexpected (but very welcome) arrival of furry, four-legged companions to campus this spring offered students a healthy dose of pure delight!

There’s nothing quite like puppy cuddles and sloppy kisses to melt away stress and lift spirits. And at UAT, we encourage students to have a school-life-work balance whenever possible. While events like this one are not too frequent, there are plenty of student clubs and groups to get involved with on UAT’s campus to add some fun time into your schedule. UAT's Tempe, Arizona backdrop also offers a plethora of places to get some much-needed “me time” for students willing to venture out and explore.


What’s more, UAT students missing their pets back home have an abundance of volunteer opportunities available to them to get some much-needed puppy (or kitten) love! Here are a few places where volunteers can make a difference in animals’ lives and give back to the community:

Lost Our Home Pet Rescue:

Based in Tempe, this organization rescues pets in crisis situations and is frequently in need of volunteers to socialize and exercise animals, assist with adoption events, and more. Learn how to get involved at lostourhome.org

HALO Animal Rescue

With a main shelter in Phoenix and an adoption center in Tempe, HALO relies on generous help from volunteers. From cleaning kennels to assisting with adoption efforts and events, there are lots of opportunities to keep busy! Visit their website at halorescue.org to see how you can contribute.

Arizona Humane Society

From dog walking to bottle-feeding kittens, there is plenty of volunteer work that needs to be done at the various Arizona Humane Society campuses. Give a helping hand by visiting azhumane.org to see what’s needed.

Whether you're walking dogs, feeding kittens, or helping at events, volunteering with these organizations offers a fulfilling way to connect with animals and make a positive impact as a UAT student in Tempe's community.
