Canine Partners, specialising in providing highly trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities, has announced that it has been selected as Charity of Choice by Pet Doctors Veterinary Clinics. The group of veterinary clinics will fundraise for Canine Partners throughout 2005, as well as sponsoring ‘Yarra’ - one of the puppies chosen for training this year.
Canine Partners aims to transform the lives of people with disabilities enabling them to lead more independent lives, by providing them with highly trained assistance dogs. Their dogs assist their Partners with numerous practical tasks such as shopping and dressing; and the relationship that develops between the dog and their Partner creates tremendous emotional benefits.
Pet Doctors which has veterinary clinics in Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex, and Cambridgeshire is committed to being involved in the local community as well as providing a top quality service and level of care for household pets.
Terry Knott Chief Executive of Canine Partners commented, “We are delighted to be supported by such a well known and professional group of veterinary clinics. We look forward to working with Pet Doctors during 2005 to make the relationship successful for all parties involved.”
