It's part of Pause for Paws which is put on by the Haven Humane Society.

The pups are brought on campus for students to play with and to help relieve stress during one of the most stressful times of the semester, finals week.

“It's been known that playing with dogs is going to de-stress you” Haven Humane CEO Mark Storrey said. “And you've seen it with the students just since you've been here. They come out, they love it. They absolutely adore it. And the dogs love it too because they get to get out of the shelter, they get a field trip. And they get to get some much needed socialization which is great for them and a little bit more exposure.”

This is the third year haven humane puts on Pause for Paws at Simpson University.

Storrey says it's more of a community event than an adoption event.

But the dogs are in need of a forever home.

You can drop by Haven Humane or visit their website for adoption information.
