Pets As Therapy is a national charity founded in 1983 by Lesley Scott-Ordish.

The four-legged friends have regularly visited Greenwood Court independent living scheme in Leyland. The visits have enhanced the lives of the residents by providing companionship and friendship and have also helped to tackle loneliness. The residents have also benefitted from receiving health and wellbeing advice from the trusted volunteers who come with their behaviourally assessed animals, and it is a wonder to see what a fantastic affect these animals have.
