Therapy Dog Awareness Month

Helping animals bring joy to people

1 - 30 September 2021



Delta Therapy Dogs is the leader in evidence-based animal assisted services and education in Australia. We help animals bring joy through our animal assisted services and programs to over 20,000 Australians every week. From kids in hospital to the residents in nursing homes, anxious uni students and stressed office workers – every day across our nation lives are uplifted by hard working Delta Therapy Dog teams.


Pets show us how to live in the moment, focus on the positive, and foster gratitude in our lives – all of which is needed even more in these uncertain and challenging times. Thousands of volunteer Delta Therapy Dog teams take this one step further by sharing the bond they have with their pet with others from different walks of life. This leas to a greater sense of wellbeing in our community and reduces social isolation.


This September will be our fourth annual Therapy Dog Awareness Month where we will acknowledge and celebrate the impactful work of our therapy dogs.


“We’re so proud of our Delta Therapy Dog teams who’ve stayed connected to community

and continue to share their bond with their loving pets with people around Australia.

The last eighteen months have presented many challenges as we’ve all

Worked hard to stay safe and well at home, at work, and within our local communities.

We’re thrilled to continue to amplify our purpose of helping animals bring joy to people and encourage others to share their experiences and how a Delta Therapy Dog has made a difference in their life”

– Melinda Farrell, Chief Executive Officer


Due to evolving COVID-19 public health measures Therapy Dog Awareness Month will take place online this year through sharing of stories and Delta Therapy Dog experiences.



It’s a great time to learn more about positive reinforcement training, how to volunteer or become a facility partner, and the impactful work of animal assisted services through Delta Therapy Dogs.
