WHAT WE DO...........

CARING CANINES is a local non-profit making voluntary group working in the community helping people of all ages and abilities to understand dogs and be confident in their company

We offer the medical profession the assistance of our assessed, vaccinated and insured dogs to break down barriers and to enhance the lives of those people who miss canine companionship often working in Mental Health Units/Homes. We also offer various support and educational programmes to Primary Schools

Our teams of experienced volunteers visit establishments to talk about dog owner`s responsibilities, safety around dogs and how and from where to get further help and advice.

Our special dogs are a very important and integral part of people`s lives, whether it be in a nursing home, a hospice, a hospital, a day centre or a school.

SUPPORTING members are a very important part of the group and we endeavour to "buddy" them up with a Visiting Team so they can experience first hand the work of our wonderful CARING CANINES and involve them in our fund raising, awareness and social events.

If you are interested in our work, would like to book a speaker to hear more, or feel you could offer us practical support to continue providing our FREE Community Service please call either of the founders, Sue or Julie
