Pet Owner Support Network making an impact within our community

By | News | No Comments

Gymea Community Aid’s new program Keeping People and Pets Together is making an impact in our community.

Our volunteers offer support to people older than 65 years of age, who have difficulty caring for their pet, but do not want to give them up.

Volunteers will assist you with basic pet care support, dog walking, pet hygiene for cats, birds and rabbits, basic grooming needs and transport to veterinary appointments.

For a small set up fee, we can help you stay happy together with your loved pet contact us : aged@gcais.ngo.org.au or call 9524 9559
