Pets As Therapy (PAT) Dog
Pets as Therapy (PAT) is a national charity founded in 1983. It is a community based charity providing therapeutic visits to hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, schools and a variety of other establishments from volunteers with their pet dogs and cats.
We are joined every Thursday by Zuba. Children will be invited to read with Zuba and spend time in a nurturing environment. No child is made to take part. It is our intention to introduce the whole school to Zuba over the course of the visits with some children spending different amounts of time with her. As I am sure you understand we must also consider the welfare of the animal.
