(PRESS RELEASE) Pet Partners, the nation’s leading organization in registering therapy animals for animal-assisted interventions, and the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) have teamed up to offer congressional staff a break from the stress of wrapping up an exceptionally busy year and to share stories of how therapy animals help people of all ages in settings including schools, hospitals, Veterans Affairs facilities, workplaces and more.

Who better to bring comfort and relief to the hardworking folks on Capitol Hill than a furry group of loving, intuitive, and bipartisan Pet Partners therapy animals?

Scientific research shows that the human-animal bond has a positive impact on human health and well-being, including cardiovascular disease, stress, blood pressure, sleep, depression and anxiety. Companion animals have even been shown to help people increase communication and social connections.

Meet the Pets takes place 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on in the Hart Senate Office Building and Rayburn House Office Building.
