Delta Society Australia is very pleased to launch our brand new adoption program – the Red Bandanna Club!
When donors become part of the Red Bandanna Club, they will be adopting a Delta Therapy Team and their donation will directly support their important work for an entire year.
Our wonderful dogs are renowned for their special uniform – a red bandanna which signifies they are a qualified Delta Therapy Dog. By joining the Red Bandanna Club, donors will be ensuring their chosen Delta Dog can continue to wear their bandanna and spread their special kind of love.
“It costs Delta Society around $1,000 every year to support each of our Delta Therapy Teams,” says General Manager Hollee Curran. “This includes recruiting each volunteer and their dog, assessing and reassessing the team, training the team to our professional standards, providing uniforms, providing insurances, placing the team in a participating health care facility and providing ongoing support. As a not for profit with no government funding, Delta needs funds to ensure we can continue to offer this vital program.”
Adopters will also receive many benefits for joining the exclusive Red Bandanna Club including their name or logo on the shirt sleeve of their adopted volunteer team, the right to attend a therapy visit with their team and a special gift which allows them to show off their membership in the Red Bandanna Club.
