INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Man’s best friend became students best friend today at IUPUI.

16-dogs and cats from “Love on a Leash” spent a couple hours on Tuesday at the Indianapolis campus. They were there to offer a little stress release for students studying for finals.

Love on a Leash is a nonprofit organization of volunteers that provides emotional support to individuals and groups through members’ personal pets.

This is the second year the University has brought the pets to campus. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
