For the third semester, Hamilton students were able to take a break from studying for finals and spend some time relaxing with pets from the Rome Humane Society in an event hosted by HAVOC and Active Minds. Three cats were brought to the Fillius Events Barn for the event on Dec. 13, followed by two dogs on the 14th.
Students made a donation and reserved a time slot to play with the pets. More than 80 people signed up between both days plus 40 walk-ins over the two-day event, according to Alana Christopher ’14, event organizer.
“We raised about $350 for the Rome Humane Society through the generous donations of students on campus” said Christopher. “It was a great event, and I don't think anyone left unhappy!”
