Volunteers and their dogs from Mayhew’s TheraPaws programme were paw-struck when they met not one but three incredible actors from the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home film!
Tom Holland, Zendaya and Jacob Batalon relished the opportunity to chill out with Pops the sausage, Marcel ‘le corgi’, Doris, Frank and Bismarck during a full day of press and media interviews last week.
The stars even gave the TheraPaws dogs new Marvel names and clearly felt the mood-enhancing benefits of spending time with animals. Jacob is very excited when Doris climbs up for some strokes, and Tom says, ‘Thanks for this. It’s been a nice change of the day!’
TheraPaws is a dog therapy programme that works to improve wellbeing in the local community. The team of volunteers take their therapy dogs into care and residential homes, hospitals, hospices and day care centres to engage with residents, provide companionship and brighten up their day.
They can also arrange for their TheraPaws dogs to visit corporate offices and organisations, to help staff de-stress and encourage emotional wellbeing at work.
