Dogs for the Disabled, Our Charity for 2015

Posted on Feb 26, 2015

Dogs for the Disabled was chosen as our charity for 2015.  We will be raising lots of money over the course of the year for this amazing charity.

Dogs have the power to change lives. Research has shown that dogs can improve our physical health, reduce stress and develop self-esteem. They can help increase our opportunities to socialise and improve a child’s concentration. Those positives become even greater when a dog is partnered with a disabled person. It’s also why we are constantly striving to find innovative ways to help people.

Dogs for the Disabled is working to provide solutions to help people with a wide variety of different disabilities and conditions; from assistance dogs helping children and adults with physical disabilities and families affected by autism, to pet dog autism workshops, and innovative new projects working in schools and residential care settings.
