We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our community which has allowed us to get our Paw Pals program up and running.

Our team is currently supporting young people who are unable to live with their birth families and are looked after by staff in residential care homes.

Paw Pals is also supporting students at MacKillop's specialist school in Maidstone, and two children in mainstream schools who have been excluded from the classroom because of behaviours that can't currently be managed.

The program already has a waiting list even though we haven't officially promoted it.

There's so much more to do, and so many children who we're desperate to work with.

Can you help us make a difference?

We know the program works. We’ve seen it change lives.

When I’m with Millie, it makes every bit of stress that I’m latching on to lets go. It just goes. Working with Millie brings my day to a different level of happiness. I’ve never been that happy in my life than when I see that dog.
