OT students give a lending hand

OT_Dog_Wash_2011-2UAB Occupational Therapy students got their hands dirty by giving some much needed baths to several dogs. The Department of Occupational Therapy teamed up with the Alabama Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ALSPCA) in Tuscaloosa and Hand in Paw for the dog wash.  The students cleaned up the OT_Dog_Wash_2011-1pups to not only get them ready to be adopted by a loving family, but to show how these dogs are great for animal-assisted therapy.

The department first teamed up with ALSPCA during the summer. The OT students helped wash and prepare dogs for adoption that were displaced by the April 27 tornadoes.
