Missing You

Irish Therapy Dogs very much miss visiting our wonderful friends in all categories of Care Centres throughout the country. We can assure you that our best part of normal will be returning to seeing you all.

These are difficult times, but necessary that everybody plays their part to keep each other safe. With a united front we look forward to a brighter future when the dogs can get their cuddles and we can get our hugs again.

Keep well, keep safe one and all. 🐾🐾🐾


Irish Therapy Dogs are following the HSE and Nursing Homes Ireland directives regarding the containment of the COVID-19 virus. It is a difficult time for everybody. It is up to each and every one of us to help prevent the virus spreading.
