Pets As Therapy wins Purina #BetterwithPets 1st prize

We’ve been awarded a Purina “BetterwithPets” prize and we’re thrilled.

The generous two-year grant, acknowledging the strength in the pet-human bond, means our charity will be part of a Europe-wide community helping to improve the health and wellbeing of people in vulnerable situations. The award recognises the relationship we have with their pets and the incredible impact of our visiting PAT Teams. We are incredibly proud to receive this prize.



Clare Davis, former CEO of Pets As Therapy

‘We know PAT visits can’t fix the world, but each and every day our volunteers and their pets are making a difference to people’s lives. From enabling someone lost in the fog of dementia to speak or being a catalyst for someone to talk when they’ve not been able to say what’s wrong, our impact is immediate, it’s in the here and now. If Pets As Therapy were an unpolished diamond, winning the “BetterwithPets” award will help it to shine by widening our reach and helping us refine our training and support. It’ll enable us to address our growing waiting list and provide more PAT Teams into the places which need us.”
