Pets As Therapy (P.A.T. Dogs)

pat therapy dogsPets As Therapy is a national charity founded in 1983. It is unique in that it provides therapeutic visits to hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools and a variety of other venues by volunteers with their own friendly, temperament tested and vaccinated dogs. 

Sick patients often feel isolated and even the most withdrawn seem to open up and let the barriers down when  their regular Pets As Therapy visiting dog is around. These dogs bring everyday life closer and with it all the happy associations for them of home comforts.

The constant companionship of an undemanding animal, that gives unconditional love, is often one of the most missed aspects of their lives. Pets As Therapy was formed to help make this loss more bearable and speed recovery.

P.A.T Dogs come in all shapes and sizes, including pedigree and cross-breeds. Applicants are assessed for their suitability by P.A.T assessors or approved vets.
