About Pets As Therapy

Pets As Therapy is a national charity founded in 1983. It is a community based charity  providing therapeutic visits to hospitals, hospices, nursing and care homes, special needs schools and a variety of other establishments from volunteers with their pet dogs and cats.
Since its beginning over 28,000 dogs have become registered PAT dogs. Every year some of these wonderful dogs need to retire and new dogs, having first passed a health, temperament, and suitably assessment, join Pets As Therapy.
Today there are over 5,000 active PAT dogs & a smaller  number of PAT cats working throughout the UK. Every week visiting PAT teams bring comfort and companionship to 1,000’s of  people, both young and old, by giving them the opportunity to stroke, hold and talk to one of these calm and friendly dogs and cats.
Pets As Therapy also provide individual animal assisted therapy (AAT), working with stroke patients and people with dog phobias.
Please note that it is not currently possible for Pets As Therapy to visit people in their own homes.
