About CALS Wellness Featured Pets

In an effort to promote community and wellbeing, the CALS Community of Wellness is happy to highlight the special bonds between pets and owners by featuring pets of employees across our college.

A 2022 survey by the American Pet Products Association found that 70 percent of American households own a pet, a jump from 56 percent in 1988.  More than 23 million people added a pet to their home during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the ASPCA.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, studies have shown that the bond between people and their pets is linked to health benefits.

Pet of the Week: July 10

Name: Oakley
Owner: Katy France, CALS Human Resources

On a remote work day, I got up to refill my coffee and when I returned, Oakley had taken over my job. He’s looking at me as if to say, “Mom, you’re interrupting a very important Zoom meeting.”
