We're Waging Our Tails!!

THANK YOU! We reached our goal of $500 and we want to see if we can double it! Help us to reach $1,000 by the end of #GivingTuesday to support our Broncho Barkers!


Broncho Barkers, UCO's Therapy Dog Program, officially launched in spring 2019 within Central's Health Promotion office. Broncho Barkers exists to aid in overall positive well-being through human-animal connection. This unique program allows for a de-stressing opportunity for our students, staff and faculty. Research shows that just 10 minutes with a therapy animal can significantly decrease the stress hormone cortisol. When a student is doing well out of the classroom, they can give their best effort in the classroom.

Broncho Barkers is staffed by UCO and consists of a team made up of a therapy dog and a university faculty or staff member. 


Students are faced with many life stressors including a full course load, full-time jobs, family, social life, and other responsibilities calling for their attention. Through Broncho Barkers, we are able to give students the opportunity to connect with a therapy dog to ensure their stress levels are decreased.


We would love to reach our funding goal to have more therapy dogs at Central. Please share our project with your friends, family and UCO acquaintances!
