UShare Pets as Therapy

Acronym: 
U SHARE

Part of the service offered by students and other volunteers is pet therapy. Taking their own pets, visits are made to nursing homes, private homes, hostels etc, so the proven beneficial therapy of patting and communicating with a loving animal can be experienced by people who, for a variety of reasons, cannot have one of their own. We also assist nursing homes etc with setting up Pets as Therapy programs both with visiting volunteers and residential pets.
