College Community Remembers Therapy Dog

 The Certified Therapy Dog of the Herkimer College Counseling Center, Renegade, unexpectedly passed away on Feb. 28, 2022.

Many students and faculty were extremely heartbroken by this news. Renegade has always brought happiness to whoever he met.

“Renegade was such a sweet, loving dog! He always greeted everyone he met with a wagging tail!” one student said.

Nothing can ever prepare someone for the loss of an animal, and Renegade was no exception

Renegade had a memorial slideshow in his honor on Mar. 3, 2022, from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. It was on the second floor reading room in the library.

In addition to the slideshow, a memorial scrapbook was made for Renegade’s owners that included many photos and memories of Renegade.
