What is a Mental Health Doggie Cuddle Day?
This is a day we bring some of our sweetest adoptable dogs and palliatives to your place of work or educational institution for cuddles and love.

Most business charge a small fee to the employees to raise funds for Freedom. So far we have had the pleasure of visiting TD Bank, Ottawa U and a Brownies Meeting.

Interacting with affectionate dogs can reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, lower blood-pressure and even decrease the perception of pain. Based on these benefits, many universities and companies have introduced Doggy De-stress sessions on location.
These petting sessions also offer students and staff who are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, the opportunity to increase socialization through interaction with dogs, volunteers and others in a relaxing setting.
