Irish Therapy Dogs would like to thank the management and staff at Horkan’s Garden Centre, Turlough, Castlebar, Co. Mayo for the warm welcome extended to us at our Awareness Day held there on 26th September. We thank their customers for the interest shown in our Charity and appreciate the promotion and support given by Horkan’s Garden Centre to Irish Therapy Dogs. A special thank you to our Volunteer Visiting Teams and their Therapy Dogs who were present at the event.
The weather did not dampen the spirits of our Volunteers and Junior members, along with their family and friends, who travelled from many counties for our Annual Walk held in Cork and Dublin on Sunday September 13th which coincided with our 7th Birthday. Prionnsías O Dúinn, one of our Patrons, attended our Dublin event where Junior Members Emer, Grace, Kellie, Jasmine, Sophie and Lara were presented with their Paw Points’ Awards. We thank all who participated for making our annual event so enjoyable.
Irish Therapy Dogs’ Annual Sponsored Walks take place on Sunday next in Cork and Dublin. Your family and friends are more than welcome to join us for this very enjoyable event. Ballincollig (starting form Tesco, Ballinacollig) is the venue for our Cork Walk and our Dublin Walk starts at Head Office on Merrion Road and takes in Sandymount Strand. Both walks commence at 2.30pm and refreshments will be served afterwards.
