Mona Vale Vets help provide more canine carersAugust 15, 2019
For thousands of years, dogs and humans have looked after each other physically and emotionally. We’ve benefited from each other’s existence and become best mates in the process.
Each and every year, Mona Vale Vets participates in the Pub2Pub to support the amazing work done by Assistance Dogs Australia. This week, a caring canine named CeeJay came to visit the practice with her owner Sonya, to say thanks.
Assistance Dogs Australia trains and places unique dogs like CeeJay with Australians in unique situations. They train dogs that specialise in providing support for people with a physical disability, autism or PTSD and also provide a range of additional services to these individuals and their families.
“Having a trained canine friend by their side gives independence and unconditional support to people who are less fortunate than ourselves“, says Mona Vale Vets Practice Manager, Georgie McCarthy. “The more people who know about Assistance Dogs Australia, the greater the positive impact this remarkable organisation can make. That’s why we get behind them via the Pub2Pub each year.”
Georgie is a born and bred local, growing up in Newport – another reason she’s so supportive of the great northern beaches event that has raised over $3.5 million for worthy causes since inception. “Our team loves running in the Pub2Pub each year. It builds Team Spirit and enables us to contribute to our special cause“, says Georgie. “Beautiful dogs like CeeJay are made available ‘free-to-client’ and provide independence, self-esteem, improved health and relationships to individuals and families – resulting in stronger and more successful communities overall. Please give generously to Assistance Dogs Australia… and a big thank you to everyone who does. Your generosity means a lot to us.”
