By connecting isolated Australians with rescue animals in need

Happy Paws Happy Hearts (HPHH) is effectively addressing two significant social problems: social isolation for veterans or people living with a disability, and animal abandonment.HPHH puts individuals at the centre of its services to restore their sense of purpose. They deliver on a broad range of outcomes including improved well-being, increased social participation and new employment prospects. They are seeking funding to deliver a 6-month program where veterans will train their own rescue dog to become a support animal.
