It all started when…

4 Legged Friends is run by a social enterprise called YP Potential CIC.

The 4 Legged Friends project was set up by YP Potential Founder, Jim Clarke out of a passion for animals and how they help to lower peoples stress levels and promote positive mental health. Jim is the proud Dad of 17 family pets including 3 dogs (Jess, Alice and Jake), 7 adopted Guinea Pigs (Rupert, Ricky, Eamon, Frodo, Sam, Milo and Little Kev), 6 adopted Rabbits (Toffee, Conker, Toby, Lettuce, Emily and Buck) and a cat called Mr T who was a street cat in Greece.

4 Legged Friends originally started when Jim took his dog to visit his Auntie in a care home; 4 Legged Friends now works with 7 Care homes, 3 Schools and Children Mental Health Ward.
