Handsome Dogs for Good young Labrador Zeb, with his volunteer puppy socialiser Cathy Dore, received the cheque for £1000 on behalf of the charity from Lyceum Theatre Oldham Chairman Mark Higginbottom.
Dogs for Good is a national charity exploring ways dogs can help people overcome specific challenges and enrich and improve lives and communities.
Its assistance dogs support adults and children with a range of disabilities and also children with autism, and it trains activity and therapy dogs to work with specialist handlers in communities and schools.
A dedicated family Dog team also gives specialist advice and support to help people get the most out of their relationship with their pet dog.
Dogs for Good volunteer socialisers care for puppies from eight weeks old to around 16-18 months, before they start formal training with the charity, including introducing them to new environments they may encounter in as working dogs.
Lyceum Theatre Oldham has chosen to support the worthy cause as its Chairman’s Charity 2016, celebrating the success of a season of sell-out shows.
