We are very sad to announce that Dinah Baynton-Dibley, who worked at Pets As Therapy as Placement Officer, died on 1 November 2018.

Dinah loved dogs and was passionate about her work at Pets As Therapy, and over the years she was instrumental in developing the Read2Dogs scheme. More than 1,000 schools now participate and children across the country benefit every day as a result.

Everyone at Pets As Therapy and many PAT Volunteers will greatly miss Dinah. Our thoughts and sympathy are with her partner Mark and all her family.

Dinah’s family have requested we make the following statement: If you wish to, and Instead of sending flowers, we ask that you make a donation to Pets As Therapy; to further the cause and work she cared so much about. Please use the following link to donate via the bespoke JustGiving campaign setup in Dinah’s honour:
