Meet Endicott’s Newest Gull, Gary!

Request a visit with Gary! 

Looking for additional support? Contact the Counseling Center. 

 

How Gary Can Help

  • Relief from the stress of finals week
  • Someone furry to hug when you’re far from home
  • Distraction from current events
  • Boost the vibe on a Monday

Let’s Keep Gary Safe! 

Do Don’t
Ask to pet Gary if you see him around campus! Pet Gary without permission. 

Please ask Gary’s handler for permission to pet him first, as Gary may be busy at work or resting on his break! 

Take selfies with Gary!

Be sure to follow us on social media to see what Gary is up to, or where he may be available on campus. 

Give Gary your own treats. 

Gary’s handler can provide an approved treat for him.
 
Schedule a session ahead of time or make a request via our online request form.   Call Endicott Police dispatch to see what Gary is up to. 
Reach out to Public Safety & Police for immediate medical or mental health needs. Gary may not be on-duty but officers are on-duty 24/7 to assist our community.  

“Everyone dreams of working their dream job someday. I am fortunate to have that opportunity already. Having a permanent furry partner only makes things that much better! I cannot wait to serve the community alongside Gary.”
