Paws for Patients2018-01-18T15:15:54+00:00

It is well-known – and scientifically proven – that interaction with a gentle, friendly pet has significant benefits for patients and aids in helping improve their recovery by improving their physical and mental well-being.

The APA is in the early stages of developing a partnership with one of Australia’s leading animal welfare organisations to develop a program where patients are matched with pets that are in need of a good home. It’s a win-win for the patients and the animals.
