Wednesday 1 February 2017: UCL Law Society raise funds for Pets as Therapy


Since 2015, the UCL Law Society has been holding annual events to raise funds for charities relating to animals. This year, we collaborated with Pets As Therapy (PAT). We thank the volunteers and pets from PAT for taking the time to interact with UCL Laws students on campus.

Our spirits were lifted by Rosie, Frankie, Fudgy and Poppy, and we hope that PAT will be successful in its aims to enhance lives and educate the public on dogs.

Zaal Cama, final year LLB student and Overseas Officer, said:

"I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the PAT volunteers and their pets. The experience was really enjoyable and I look forward to their next visit!"
