Call it the paws that refresh: University of Virginia medical and nursing students took a break from their studies to de-stress with comforting canine companions.

UVA’s popular therapy dogs — adorable pooches that visit with patients — came out for an annual event called the “5Cs Caring Break.” The event features canines, cocoa, cider, and cookies, with the fifth C standing for “contributions.” Organizers solicited donations for the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The event is sponsored by the UVA Health System’s Claude Moore Health Sciences Library and a student group, the Aid to Medical Students Committee.
