Preseli Pembrokeshire Assembly Member Paul Davies recently attended an event to celebrate the work of therapy dogs across Wales. The event was organised by the charity Therapy Dogs Nationwide to give Assembly Members a better understanding of the valuable role that therapy dogs undertake at hospitals, hospices, schools, residential homes and prisons throughout the country.
Mr Davies said, “I was delighted to attend the therapy dogs event to meet them and their owners. These dogs provide invaluable support to so many people and it was a great opportunity to hear first-hand some of the incredible success stories that have come about – partly- because of therapy dogs. I hope that more people have access to this therapy in the future and I applaud the owners and volunteers who give up their time to accompany the dogs on their visits and facilitate their outstanding work.”
