Canine Concern and Therapet

Delivered by Canine Concern Scotland Trust
  • Animal welfare

Canine Concern Scotland Trust was formed in 1988 to help dogs and their owners, and to improve their position in present-day society.

Therapets and their owners regularly visit hospitals, day centres and nursing homes, as well as special needs schools, where the pets provide a little four-legged therapy and companionship to animal lovers who aren’t able to care for a pet full-time.

If you are interested in finding out about arranging a visit to your school, youth/community group or local library from one of our volunteers and a visiting Therapet, contact us.


If you are interested in finding out more about the Therapet Service and to see if your pet could be registered with Canine Concern Scotland Trust as a Therapet contact us.
