The companion dog support program is for dog owners, who are elderly or have a disability, that need help to walk their dog.
By registering for this program, you may be eligible to have a volunteer visit once a week to walk your dog. The program is free and only for City of Tea Tree Gully residents.
The assessment process involves a home visit to discuss participant's and dog's needs. Participants are then matched with a suitable volunteer. All volunteers are screened and reference checked and receive appropriate training as part of this program.
