DogFest 2021: It’s a wrap!

Pets As Therapy has manned a stand at three DogFest events during September – at Knebworth House, Cirencester Park and finally last weekend at Tatton Park.

It was great to be able to spend time with the many PAT Volunteers who attended. You all helped us to raise awareness of our charity and raise ever-important funds. We were also delighted to assess 24 registered volunteers who were waiting to book their assessment – thank you to Carole Adam and Gerald Seal for making this possible. Many thanks also to Jonny Nagler for helping set up and break down the stand at each show.

Last weekend at Tatton Park, we were visited by Clare Balding and Michaela Strachan, both of whom already know about the wonderful work of our volunteers!

We cannot talk DogFest without mentioning a very special volunteer team. If it were not for Cate Archer and her dearly-departed Dougie, we may never have been invited to attend. A dedicated duo, Cate organised, set up and managed previous events, promoting her book Doug the Pug: A Working Dog's Tale... did you know that all proceeds were donated directly to Pets As Therapy?

Thank you so much Cate, we were all thinking of you and missed your presence at each weekend.
