Irish Therapy Dogs at Pet Expo

Categories: News

PET Expo 2013

A sincere thank you to all the Volunteer Visiting Teams who travelled from near and far, for their presence at our very attractive Exhibition Stand at Pet Expo on Saturday and Sunday November 16th and 17th.  Our dogs and their owners gave a warm welcome, with plenty of ‘wagging tails’, to all who visited our Stand and this was reflected by the interest and support shown in the work of Irish Therapy Dogs.  There was a demonstration held on both afternoons  where Volunteers simulated  visits to Care Centres and showed the therapeutic effect that Therapy Dogs have on residents. We hope that, in the future, we will welcome back some of the visitors to our Stand as Volunteer Visiting Teams.
