Pete's Pet POSSE

A vision of former First Cowgirl, Ann Hargis, Pete’s Pet Posse (P3), OSU’s Pet Therapy Program, is self-funded and stands as a cornerstone of the university’s commitment to America’s Healthiest Campus®. P3 enriches the physical and emotional well-being of the entire OSU family. Our dedicated teams serve in offices across campus, offering a warm, furry presence to students, faculty, and staff in need of a pick-me-up or support during stressful times.  Pet therapy teams also serve campus through special appearances on campus such as the library, residence halls, Reboot Center, and others.  The daily presence of our P3 pups serves as a reassuring reminder that their well-being matters, and they have a loyal friend ready to shower them with love and comfort.

This remarkable program has extended its reach beyond Stillwater to OSU-Tulsa, OSU Center for Health Sciences, OSU-Oklahoma City, and the OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine Cherokee Nation in Tahlequah—the nation’s first tribally-affiliated medical school. Over 70 pet therapy teams serve OSU students, faculty, staff, and visitors system-wide.

As a self-funded program, Pete’s Pet Posse relies on generous donations to sustain its operations. Your contribution aids Pete’s Pet Posse in expanding its capacity to serve the entire OSU community. New pet therapy teams are added each year and with your support, we can equip each team with the necessary supplies and assistance to provide this invaluable and impactful service to the university. Thank you for your support!
