Delahousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia has created a “puppy room” on campus. In order to reduce stress levels, promote good mental health, and encourage feelings of well-being students are encouraged to spend some time with cute, furry companions. Perhaps the next “puppy room” ought to be set up in the United Nations.
