We all know incredible things happen when we bring people and dogs together. If you have a dog, you will definitely know the happiness and simple pleasures they bring in our lives, especially during these mad COVID times.
Assistance Dogs Australia train and place unique dogs with Australians in unique situations. Their free-to-client assistance dogs provide independence, self-esteem, improved health and relationships to individuals and families – resulting in stronger and more successful communities.
October is Dogtober, a month-long event to get involved with Assistance Dogs, have some fun and help train another 25 super pups to help people with physical disabilities.
You can help by creating your own doggie themed event or being sponsored to undertake a challenge which will raise much-needed funds and awareness.
To know more and participate in Dogtober, please visit Assistance Dogs Australia.
With the current situation going on, most of us are working remotely. We all need a little bit of happiness and a companionship at the moment, and those fortunate enough to have pets have a clear way to escape from loneliness as well.
Let us know how your pets are helping you through these unusual times… perhaps send us a picture of your pet(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org and show us how are they helping you cope…!
