A sincere thank you to our Volunteer Visiting Teams for their presence at our Stand at ‘Cork Pawfest’ on Sunday July 27th. 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 shown in the work of Irish Therapy Dogs. We hope that,in the future, we will welcome back some of the visitors to our Stand as Volunteer Visiting Teams.

Thank You!

Paws in the Park, Cloghran, Co. Dublin - June 2014

A sincere thank you to  our Volunteer Visiting Teams from around the country for their presence at our Exhibition Stand at ‘Paws in the Park’ this weekend. 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 shown in the work of Irish Therapy Dogs. A demonstration was given where Volunteers simulated visits to Care Centres and showed the therapeutic effect that Therapy Dogs have. We hope that, in the future, we will welcome back some of the visitors to our Stand as Volunteer Visiting Teams.
