Our purpose is to help animals bring joy to people.
We believe that the human-animal bond improves quality of life.
We believe in the social, emotional and physiological benefits of positive interaction between people and therapy animals.
Our programs include visits to hospitals, aged care facilities, mental health facilities, dementia wards, palliative care, disability services, health clinics, schools, correctional facilities and workplaces.
Our volunteer teams bring joy to the lives of those in need. We brighten the lives of approximately 20,000 people around Australia each week.
