Volunteers...with Dogs

  • VO36772


Description

The only essential for a Therapet is a steady and happy temperament. The dogs are approved for temperament and general suitability before being accepted and are not considered until at least one year old.
Volunteer owners must become actual members of Canine Concern Scotland Trust, mainly for insurance reasons.
Volunteers must be willing to make a regular commitment to visit; it need not be very often, once a fortnight, once a month or whenever, but the visits must be regular because residents and patients look forward to them so much and are disappointed if they suddenly cease.

Organisation aims and objectives

To take pets into special schools, hospitals, hospices and nursing homes, to provide proven therapy. All pets are specially selected.
