Chili the Border Collie Helps Students Relax at School

The News Sentinel‘s Lydia McCoy recently wrote a story about Chili, an 8-year-old Border Collie mix, who works in the Gresham Middle School counseling office.

Chili is part of H.A.B.I.T., which stands for Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee, a program of the College of Veterinary Medicine at UT that brings animal-assisted therapy and visitation programs to facilities including area schools, hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and public libraries.
