June 2016 Recipients
Mobility Assistance Dogs in Henderson received $1,609 to purchase 10 dog crates for transporting mobility dogs to members of the community with physical disabilities.
The not-for-profit organisation aims to enhance the lives of people living with long-term physical disabilities by providing mobility dogs to increase their independence, confidence and participation in the community.
This year they have seen a 50 percent increase in enquires and anticipate homing another five mobility dogs by the end of the year. The crates will be used to transport the dogs, providing them with a secure place to sleep, feed and recuperate after a bout of ill health or surgery.
