Living it Up popped along to visit Canine Concern at their stall in Musselburgh over the weekend.
The charity's wildly successful 'Therapet' project is looking for volunteers and their dogs to come along for visits to places needing a furry friendly face, like care homes and hospitals.
Would you like to get involved?
Do you like the sound of visiting a local care home with your pooch? All dog breeds have the potential to become Therapets. It's the temperament of the dog, rather than the breed or size that factors in to whether or not they would be suitable for Therapet work and, before volunteering, dogs are given an assessment to see if they'd cope.
