Rosen College’s Knight-Thon team, the Rosen Miracle Makers, brought some furry friends to campus for the Rent-a-Pup fundraising event on Nov. 2. In partnership with local nonprofit organization Pet Rescue by Judy, 14 shelter dogs visited Rosen College for the afternoon to play and help support a great cause.

Students, faculty and staff could “rent a pup” for 20 minutes and donate to the Rosen Miracle Makers, who have a fundraising goal of $3,000 for Knight-Thon 2015, benefiting Greater Orlando Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. More than 115 students participated and helped raise more than $500 over the course of the event, in addition to producing countless smiles and laughs.

To learn more about Knight-Thon or to join the Rosen Miracle Makers team, students are invited to attend an upcoming information session at Rosen College on Nov. 9 at 3 p.m. or Nov. 10 at 6:30 p.m in Room 102R. Contact Bianca Stabile at for more information.
