PAT receives generous grant from The Pets at Home Foundation

Pets at Home, the UK’s leading pet care business, has supported Pets As Therapy for many years – we’ve received donations from the sale of carrier bags in store since 2015. And now we’re delighted to announce that The Pets at Home Foundation has awarded PAT a generous grant of £346,237 to help us fund a new regional hub in north-west England.

We’re eager to set up regional hubs across the UK to better support volunteers within local communities. With the help of new PAT regional co-ordinators and admin assistants, we’ll be able to recruit more volunteers, support existing PAT Teams, interact with establishments more easily, liaise with local corporate supporters and organise local events.

The Pets at Home Foundation grant, to be awarded over three years, will enable us to put our new regional hub structure into place. We recently received our first cheque for £70,000 to coincide with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

“We are thrilled to be awarded this grant from Pets at Home,” smiles Clare Davis, Pets As Therapy CEO. “We’re a national charity, but the work we do takes place in the heart of communities. This grant will have a huge impact on Pets As Therapy, enabling us to set up our first regional hub, strengthening our ability to be embedded in local communities and provide therapeutic pet visits where they are most needed.”



We are always looking to recruit more volunteers.
