MANILA - Stressed students, faculty and staff of the University of the Philippines in Diliman can now find comfort from furry friends.

On Tuesday, UPD Chancellor Michael Tan announced a new program that allows students, faculty and staff to interact with emotional support dogs in the campus.


Tan also introduced the campus' first emotional support dogs Cotton and Tisay.

Cotton is from the College of Mass Communication while Tisay is from Quezon Hall.

Both dogs wear maroon collars so they can be identified as vaccinated, neutered, and friendly dogs.
