Meet some of our furry friends

Interacting with animals has been shown to reduce levels of cortisol (a stress-related hormone) and lower blood pressure. 

Other studies have found that animals can reduce loneliness, increase feelings of social support and boost your mood.
 
Sounds like just what the doctor ordered during lockdown.


So let's meet the four-legged friends supporting some of our volunteers and staff this International Dog's Day.  

 

Introducing...

Triggerboy is volunteer, Elizabeth's buddy. He's happiest when relaxing on the couch.
KJ (Keanu Junior) loves swimming with volunteer Rhonda's son.  He even has a swimsuit and boat!
Team-favourite, Jasper, loves helping our community. He and Brett have been volunteering for 3 years.
Mocha is team-member, Keith's latest covid-pup. This bundle of fluff is too cute!
Three month old Martini is volunteer, Leesa's newest family member.
Border collie, Ziggy, is well-known around around Carnegie for being a very sweet girl. 
Connect Health & Community volunteer, Leesa, has penned a poem to celebrate her love of dogs. Read it here.
