Visiting “Wag Teams”
Professionally assessed volunteers and their dogs who are visiting in care or medical establishments as well as “at home”; these teams are bringing the joy of animal companionship wherever and whenever it’s needed across our region. They are also in some cases accompanying them on outings.
Volunteer with a Volunteer “Tandem Volunteers”
These are older dog lovers who no longer have a dog, don’t get out as much as they would like and enjoy making new friends – also professionally assessed, they join with our Wag Teams to visit those who are less able. Our first pilot takes place in Autumn 2016.
We know how much difference a change of scene can make – from just a walk in the park to lunch out in a beautiful place. "Changing Scenes" is our commitment to fundraising to organise outings and events and providing a change of scene for our older friends.
