Did you know that our furry friends offer more than just cute faces and companionship? Studies show that those who own a pet experience a variety of health benefits, including improved cardiovascular and immune system functioning. Earlier this month, Nelnet’s Lincoln associates were invited to take a break, de-stress, and refresh with therapy dogs from Domesti-PUPS. The grinning canine companions received lots of love as a large crowd of Nelnet associates gathered to snap pictures and show affection.

Domesti-PUPS is a Lincoln-based nonprofit that trains therapy and service dogs to work in nursing homes, hospital, and schools. Their dogs help improve the quality of life for people with disabilities and those who need mobility assistance.

Thanks to our friends at Domesti-PUPS for helping the Lincoln community and putting smiles on our faces!
