Recently we were asked by the Wigan and Leigh leisure team if we knew of a dog with the right temperament for visiting the elderly in local Care Homes.
We knew straight away that kennel hound Raven would be the top dog for the job as he is so friendly and just loves humans! So earlier this week Raven, accompanied by volunteer Lynda and Leisure team member Rob, visited the Oaks Care Home in Hindley Green to meet and greet the residents there.
Immediately it became apparent that Raven was a natural and he soon began ‘working the room’! The joy on the residents’ faces was a sight to see, they enjoyed stroking him and asking about his age and history. He even enjoyed a sneaky handful of crisps from a resident at one point during the visit!
We’d like to thank the Leisure team and the Oaks for making this visit possible. Raven tells us he is very much looking forward to his next visit and is quite partial to ready salted :)
