Thank You

Irish Therapy Dogs would like to thank Gerry and all the staff at The Orchard Home and Garden, Celbridge, Co. Kildare (a venue favoured by many of our Volunteers) for the warm and generous welcome extended to us at our Awareness Days held on Sunday 26th November 2017. We appreciate the sponsorship and the promotion given by Gerry to Irish Therapy Dogs. The event was very successful and we acknowledge the interest shown by their customers in the services we provide to Care Centres and Schools. With the very positive reaction we received we are very hopeful that in the future, we will welcome back some of Gerry’s customers as Volunteer Visiting Teams. Thank you also to our Volunteers who attended.

Annual Sponsored Walk

Irish Therapy Dogs would like to thank all who supported our Sponsored Walk recently in Dublin and in Cork.  We also thank our

Volunteers with their families and friends who traveled from near and far to join in the Walks.  A Big Thank You to one and all for making the Day

a wonderful success.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much

 

Irish Therapy Dogs were very pleased to host a Meeting with five Directors of Kaniterapines Pagalbos Centras, Lithuania recently.

K.P.C have a similar vision to Irish Therapy Dogs.  The Meeting was mutually beneficial to both Organisations.
