Tarentaal village’s last Friendship Draw for 2017 – held on November 15 – was a tail-wagging affair. Paws for People arrived with their beautiful therapy dogs, and the residents loved the time spent with their four-legged friends. The NPO visits the Rand Aid retirement village each month.
“The residents love touching and interacting with the dogs,” says Tarentaal’s deputy manager, Laetitia Goosen.
Paws for People offers animal-assisted therapy and animal-assisted activity programmes in a number of provinces. Pictured are Paws for People’s Moira Dexter (with Sherrie), Sue Marrs (Rafiki), Lynne Hopkins (Legolas) and Dora Ingold (Juke).
