Have you been considering having an animal visit the residents in your care facility?
Whether you're from an aged care facility, mental health facility, adult's hospital, children's hospital or other health care facility, animal assisted therapy can have an amazing effect on your patients' and residents' health and wellbeing.
Our dedicated Therapy Dog Teams not only bring the wonderful benefits of pet therapy to patients, but also provide a welcome distraction for family members and staff. Staff can become incredibly attached to their facility's assigned Delta Therapy Dog and this has a wonderful impact on staff satisfaction and morale, which in turn reflects on the ongoing care provided to patients.
If you are interested in registering your facility for the Delta Therapy Dogs program, please read through the information below and then complete an online expression of interest form below.
As a non-profit organisation, the Delta Society relies heavily on sponsorships, community support and donations from participating facilities to make this service available. We ask facilities that wish to participate in the Delta Therapy Dogs program to donate $600 per year for each Therapy Dog team visiting your facility. Please note this donation will increase as of the 1st January 2018 to $700 per team/per year. This donation is in no way related to the services of the volunteer, who receives no remuneration for their participation. All donations are fully tax deductible and used specifically for the ongoing support and expansion of the Delta Therapy Dogs program.
