Local AM Meets Therapy Dogs at the Assembly

Local Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, attended an event at the Senedd yesterday which welcomed the charity “Therapy Dogs Nationwide” with some of the volunteer dogs and their owners to the Cardiff.

The event was hosted by Janet Finch Saunders AM and helped show case the fantastic work the dogs and their volunteer owners undertake throughout Wales.

Speaking today Nick said: “ I learned a lot about this charity founded four years ago. It’s a great idea, providing people with pet therapy when they need it.

“Visiting volunteers take their own dogs to various establishments such as schools, hospitals, nursing homes, hospices and prisons to give comfort, distraction and stimulation.

“ It was great to meet Myfanwy and her owner Mavis and to hear about the good work they do together.”
