Recently, many colleges have been changing their rules to allow students to bring their pets into the dormitories, including many of our nation’s top colleges as well as many other women’s colleges.
Many studies support the idea that pets reduce stress and increase overall happiness, and different studies suggest that pets may aid students in doing better in school. With college being one of the most stressful times in our lives, we feel that the allowance of small pets in the dormitories should be established, as well as the designation of Pet Halls to allow for spayed/neutered, vaccinated cats and dogs in specific dorms.
The animals we want allowed in the dormitories are small mammals (hamsters, mice, rats, gerbils, chinchillas, ferrets, guinea pigs, etc.), certified non-venomous reptiles, and the increase of the aquarium limit to 20 gallons.
We, the undersigned, call on Texas Woman's University and the Housing Department to designate Pet Halls in the Stark, Guinn, Jones, and Lowry Woods areas for the allowance of vaccinated, spayed/neutered cats, dogs under 20 pounds, small mammals, and certified non-venomous reptiles and to expand the aquarium volume limit to 20 gallons.
