Animal Companions

From assistance dogs to pampered pets, people share here what their furry friends and animal companions mean to them, and the role they play in their lives.

We’re hoping to expand this section, so please do get in touch if you’d like to share your SMA Voices about that special animal someone in your life - find out more or phone our Shared Experience Coordinator on 01789 267520.
