TheraPaws is our animal therapy programme that works to improve wellbeing in our local community.Apply to Volunteer
Our team of volunteers take their therapy dogs into care and residential homes, hospitals, hospices and day centres across London to engage with residents, provide companionship and brighten up their day. We specialise in visits to the elderly with dementia and to palliative care units encouraging social interaction to promote emotional and physical wellbeing.
We rely on volunteers and their dogs to carry out the TheraPaws visit. Find out more about volunteering.

TheraPaws is funded entirely by the generous donations of our supporters. Each initial visit costs Mayhew over £250 and the TheraPaws team made over 1067 visits in 2017.Learn More
