Thera paws is a wonderful organisation! They do volunteer work, that proves just how much dogs are good for people’s health, both mental and physical. So what do they actually do? They gather volunteers who own dogs, and they take them to care homes to interact with patients and residents. The response they get is usually amazing.
Contact with animals means so much to these people, who are either to old or too sick to take care of themselves alone. Playing with a dog, may just be the highlight of their day! Just watch this video to see how much it brings a smile to their faces.
