Notre Dame Law School brought in some precious pups to de-stress students.

Dogs and a couple of bunnies from Heartland Small Animal Rescue helped exam-ridden law students take a break.

Studies show contact with animals can often be therapeutic.

Students dropped by for a few minutes, or more, to play, making for the perfect distraction during finals prep.

“A lot of us are losing sleep, we're not eating the way we should be, and having these puppies come in and alleviate stress just gives some joy and happiness and a nice break,” Angela Johnson, co-founder of the Student-Animal Legal Defense Fund.

Notre Dame isn't alone in its pet stress reliever, law schools across the country bring in animals to help students relax.
