Christmas Cards 2015!

 

 

 

 

We are delighted to share with you the images which will grace the Peata Christmas Cards this year! We are delighted to have our own Peata dogs represented on the cards by five beautiful/handsome volunteers Buddy, Lucy, Soda and Twiggy with Roopert!

 

 

 

Cards will be available to purchase at the Carol Service (8th December) and from Village Vets. If you would like to bulk order or would like to sell the cards please email peatapettherapy@gmail.com and arrangements will be made. A pack of 6 cards will cost €5.

 

 

 

Many thanks to all our models, Darren Butler our photographer and to the TY students from Our Lady’s School Terenure who all volunteered their time. Thanks also go to the Principal and Bursar of Our Lady’s for donating the hall free of charge. It was a pleasure to work with Celine from Reads of Nassau Street in processing the images and printing the cards.

 

We also have several packs of the illustrated cards from last year. If you would like to purchase them specifically email peatapettherapy@gmail.com

Christmas Carol Service

We very much look forward to seeing you all at the Peata Christmas Carol Service in Christ Church Cathedral on Tuesday 8th December at 1.15pm. Refreshments to follow and Christmas cards will be available to purchase on the day!

Christmas Stars!

Peata hope that this year our Christmas cards will feature our visiting dogs!

To this end a photo shoot will be held on 19th September in Terenure.

If you would like your dog to take part please reply to peatapettherapy@gmail.com. The selection is on a “first come, first served” basis though we are looking for a selection of breeds, ages etc.

Please spread the word to Peata members who do not have access to the internet!

Hopefully we will have lots of beautiful images to choose from after the day!

Zoo Visit 2015

The annual Peata zoo visit was thoroughly enjoyed again this year. We were delighted to see such a wonderful turn-out of visitors, family and friends. Firstly we were introduced to Honey, the zoo dog, and given a taste of her life. Then two talks Melanie Sheridan – The management and environmental enrichment of Chimpanzees, followed by Ken Mackey – Poaching threats to rhino in the wild and in captivity. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all involved and hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.

 

Have any memories of the day you would like to share? Email peatapettherapy@gmail.com. We’re always delighted to hear from you!!
