PAWS dogs and people...Proudly bringing smiles to faces and joy to hearts for 10 years.

PAWS Pet Therapy... feel the love

A not-for-profit charitable organisation that trains & supports volunteers  and their dogs to provide specialised pet therapy around Australia.

With everything we do at PAWS Pet Therapy, the safety and wellbeing of our teams and clients is a top priority. The PAWS commitment to the ever-changing COVID situation is no exception.


Therapy, assistance, support, companion, wellbeing. These are just a few of the terms used to describe the role of dogs in society. But what is the difference? And, what is the right dog to meet your needs?


Join PAWS as a volunteer with your friendly dog to become a part of something truly special. You will receive all the training and support you need to bring smiles to faces and joy to hearts. Why wait to start your volunteering journey? 


Without the generous financial support of individuals and organisations PAWS could not operate. Just like our dogs, donations come in all sizes and we love them all the same. Give a little to help a lot...there are hundreds of people every week who will benefit from a goofy doggy smile and a warm coat to pat...thank you.   


Our dedicated, professional and compassionate therapy dog teams visit people of all ages. From reading programs and wellness visits in schools to specialised medical settings and aged care PAWS has the therapy team to suit your clients needs.
