Temporary Suspension of PAT Visits


After careful consideration and in consultation with a number of our healthcare establishments and other connected charities, the Pets As Therapy Trustees have decided to temporarily suspend all PAT visiting services and all other volunteer activities including assessing until further notice.

Pets As Therapy volunteer stories
