Description of charity's activities and outcomes
We are a national charity and RTO whose purpose is to help animals bring joy to people.

We live our purpose primarily through our Therapy Dogs programs, which sees over 1000 volunteers and their pet dogs visiting residents, patients and students at aged care facilities, hospitals, mental health units, schools, prisons, health facilities and other organisations on a regular basis.

We also currently deliver the Delta Dog Safe, Paws the Pressure and Classroom Canines programs, and through the Delta Institute the Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services, with a focus on positive reward based training methods only.
