Volunteer Blog from Shanice.

We currently have several trainees on our volunteer placement who benefit from the therapeutic benefit of the dogs to build their confidence and work with a mentor to set and achieve their goals. One of our long-standing trainees, Shanice, has shown great personal development since December when she started. She is a proactive and ambitious individual who is great at occupying the dogs, grooming them and generally enriching their day. Here’s a bit from Shanice herself….





Why did you to Volunteer with Paws and Pause?

To get more experience and get a full time job, with animals and getting to know more about each dog.
