Delta Society Australia is a national non-profit organisation.  We believe that the human-animal bond improves our quality of life and leaves lasting paw prints on our hearts.


There is a special kinship shared between dogs and people of all ages. Attention from a dog can brighten your day, make you feel loved and, as has been scientifically proven to improve overall health and well-being.


We believe that a better relationship between people and dogs will lead to a more enriched and fulfilled life for humans and dogs alike.
