Celebrate Christmas with your canine companions on Tuesday December 10 when the ever popular Peata Therapy Dog Carol Service takes place in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin, at 1.15pm.

The annual carol service celebrates the contribution that therapy dogs make in the lives of the people they visit in caring institutions.

Therapy dogs of all shapes and sizes will be barking their way into the festive spirit and other dogs (and their owners) are also very welcome to come along. The service is also attended by many people who benefit from visits by Peata volunteers and their dogs.

The service features the Christ Church Girls’ Choir and is celebrated by the Dean, the Very Revd Dermot Dunne, who will give a pet blessing to all dogs present. Tea and mince pies are available afterwards courtesy of the Friends of Christ Church Cathedral.

Peata is a voluntary organisation which provides a pet therapy service to caring institutions. Its visiting scheme involves approved volunteers and their dogs who generally pay weekly visits.
