Dog therapy to help rehabilitate ex-offenders
10:00am Sunday 29th December 2013 in Echo News
DOG lovers are being asked to volunteer for a new scheme to help rehabilitate ex-offenders.
The Essex probation service is looking for people to act as buddies to ex-offenders by providing “animal therapy”.
Volunteers, accompanied by a probation officer, will work alongside their buddy to help walk, groom and play with dogs awaiting rehoming.
For more information, contact Ann Gill, at Castle Point Association of Voluntary Services, on 01268 638416 or e-mail email@example.com
