Companion Animal Program

If you know someone over the age of 65 who is no longer able to walk their dog as much as they would like, our Companion Animal Program may be able to assist! People who love dogs are matched up with dogs who need exercise for a weekly walk of up to an hour around the dog’s local area. Our dog walker volunteers have appropriate police and other clearances, and are matched with dogs of a suitable size or activity level.

The Program provides dogs with much needed exercise and socialisation which greatly improves their quality of life. This keeps the dogs happier and healthier and better able to maintain their caring relationship with their owner.

There’s no cost to join the program, and applicants are screened to ensure they meet appropriate criteria. To get involved or for further information, call 8408 1111.
