Pets As Therapy at Crufts
Every year, the Head Office team, PAT Volunteers and Trustees head to the NEC Arena in Birmingham to attend Crufts, the world’s largest celebration of dogs. Usually held annually over four days in March, in 2021 the event takes place from Thursday 15 July to Sunday 18 July — and it’s a great opportunity for us to showcase our charity work, meet other dog lovers and recruit new volunteers.
More information about PAT at Crufts 2021 will be shared soon.
