TheraPaws is an animal assisted intervention programme designed to promote physical, social and emotional wellbeing.View our research
Our volunteers take their behaviourally assessed dogs into hospitals, mental health centres, SEN schools, care homes and hospices to help improve the quality of life for those interacting with the animal. We work with people of all ages and all boroughs across London.
Specialising in three types of animal assisted interventions, our TheraPaws volunteers and their dogs are involved in animal assisted activities (AAA), animal assisted therapy (AAT) and animal assisted education (AAE).Find out more
TheraPaws is funded entirely by the generous donations of our supporters. Each initial visit costs Mayhew over £320 and the TheraPaws team made over 900 visits in 2019.Learn More
