About the Delta Society
Delta Therapy Dogs™ Program involves temperament testing volunteers’ pet dogs and training the volunteers to become Therapy teams.
All of the teams are clearly identified - the volunteers wear attractive monogrammed polo shirts and their dogs wear stylish bandannas -
and have a high community profile.
Volunteers and their Delta Therapy dogs will visit any institution where re-establishing contact with a companion animal enhances the quality of
the patients’ and residents’ lives.
The joy and therapeutic benefit that our visiting volunteers and their Delta dogs bring to our clients – from small children to frail elderly nursing home residents - really has to be seen to be fully appreciated.
What are Delta Therapy Dogs?
The Delta Therapy Dogs program is the largest of its kind in Australia.
Every week, Delta’s amazing and devoted Volunteer Therapy Dog teams bring joy to the lives of those who need it most. The teams brighten the lives of an estimated 20,000 Australians in hospitals and health care facilities.
They currently support over 1,000 volunteers and their special dogs who make regular visits to hospitals, aged care facilities, mental health units and disability services to offer the wonderful benefits of pet therapy.
The teams spend time with patients and offer a chat,
a floppy ear to listen and a paw to shake.
