Washington Mind Service Users enjoy volunteering at Bryson’s Animal Refuge on a weekly basis.
The group have found that walking the dogs who are waiting to be re-homed, petting the cats and dogs is a two way therapy; the animals benefit from the groups time and contact, this gets them used to human company and therefore they are more approachable and easier to re-home. The group gain from the calming influence of the animals and the therapeutic benefits of being with the animals and out in the fresh air.
