Based in South & West Wales we have over 50 volunteer pet therapy teams made up of passionate volunteer handlers and their partner dogs, both assessed for suitability, all relevant checks carried out and training given. We also run a pet food bank.
We currently carry out pet therapy visits in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Swansea, Bridgend, Cardiff, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Gwent areas supporting healthcare, mental health, schools, employers and people in their own homes.
We firmly believe in dog welfare and ensuring all visits must be mutually beneficial for all and that volunteers are to be 'dog-fluent' and have a high degree of compassion and empathy for their partner dog and those they visit.
We believe in the power of the human-animal bond to provide positive outcomes and an improved emotional health and wellbeing to those in receipt of our service.
We are insured to visit and are affiliated members with Animal-Assisted Intervention International and The Society for Companion Animals. We are also a Disability Confident Employer. Please see our services section to see the range of services we can offer.
