BLACK WARRIOR BREWING COMPANY BENEFITS ANIMAL THERAPY PROGRAM AT WEEKEND EVENT

It was a doggy day benefiting the Hand in Paw organization at the Black Warrior Brewing Company on July 20.

Hand in Paw is a Birmingham-based organization to provide animal-assisted therapy to hospitals, schools and other like facilities. Research shows being around animals can improve peoples’ moods.

“What one word brings to mind to describe what animal-assisted therapy does, so many of them said ‘happy,’ one person said ‘comfort,’ one person said ‘love,’” Carol Develice, the Tuscaloosa coordinator for Hand in Paw, said.

The Hand in Paw organization hopes that events like this will promote more teams to be made in the Tuscaloosa area.
