Hi Rowena Iama volunteer for PAW S Pet Therapy, which is based in Thirlmere, NSW. I have joined a dedicated team of volunteers and their canine friends who bring joy to the sick, disabled and elderly when they visit nursing homes, cancer centres and other institutions. PAWS has recently branched out with the introduction of Paws ’n’ Tales, a reading program for children who have literacy or confidence issues. The program was piloted in 2015 at Shoalhaven Library in NSW, and it’s expected to expand into other libraries. It pairs a fully trained dog and a child to create a magical exper ience. The program is based on the popular R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) program in America. We are proud to be the first fully affiliated member in Australia to offer this program. Lisa McKay,Thirlmere NSW From Ed: If you’d like to get involved in Paws ’n’ Tales, visit pawspettherapy.com or send an email to email@example.com.
