June 2017 Meeting

‘Therapy Dogs’
With Mary Oliver & Bertie

Tuesday 20th June 2017

 Thank you to Mary Oliver and her dog ‘Bertie’ for coming along to tell us about ‘Therapy Dogs Nationwide’ and how Mary got involved with Therapy Dogs.

‘Therapy Dogs Nationwide’ is a charity made up of around 230 volunteers.   All dogs have to be groomed and put through awareness training before being allowed out into the community.  Dogs often go to owners in residential and nursing homes, as well to young children.

There is currently a waiting list for dogs and more information can be found at therapydogsnationwide.org
