Pets As Therapy are delighted to welcome Coronation Street star Pauline Fleming to its list of wonderful volunteers.
Pauline - who plays Penny, the girlfriend of factory boss Mike Baldwin - and her lovely Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Doris are going to start visiting in the Liverpool area.
PAT Dogs are also delighted that Pauline and Doris will be joining them on the Pets As Therapy stand at Crufts (stand 76A Hall 4) and in the Parade of PAT dogs on Saturday 11th March.
" I have a friend whose dog is a PAT dog and I always thought what a good idea it was", said Pauline.
" It is lovely to be able to do something like this with your animal, and I believe the people they help are immensely comforted by them. There is no doubt that the work PAT dogs and PAT cats do is vital in patient care".
