The Mayhew Animal Home in Trenmar Gardens, hopes to scoop The Daily Mirror’s Animal Hero Awards in recognition of its TheraPaws® programme.

The scheme sees volunteers and their dogs visit hospitals, hospices, care homes and day centres across North and West London to engage with older residents.

The scheme encourages social interaction and promotes emotional and physical wellbeing particularly with dementia sufferers.

Luke Berman, TheraPaws project manager, said: “It means so much for TheraPaws to be nominated for the Animal Hero Awards’ Special Recognition Award, especially as The Mayhew celebrates its 130th year this year.

“It’s been a fantastic year so far for The Mayhew, having won the Animal Charity Team of the Year in the 2016 Petplan and Association of Dogs and Cats Homes Animal Charity Awards. We are really excited about being nominated for the Animal Hero Awards and to win would top off a brilliant year for us.”
