Natalie Asseraf, gummi’s Managing Director, is thrilled to announce a comprehensive partnership with Delta Therapy Dogs. gummi will enter into a multi-year program with Delta Therapy Dogs that includes sponsorship, fundraising, education, advocacy and eventing.
Delta Society Australia is a national non-profit organisation with 1200 Therapy Dog Teams around the country. Delta’s programs include visits to hospitals, aged care facilities, mental health facilities, dementia wards, palliative care, disability services, health clinics, schools, correctional facilities and workplaces.
Attention from a dog can brighten your day, make you feel loved and, as has been scientifically proven improve overall health and well-being. Delta runs multiple programs that touch the lives of 20,000 people each week.
At gummi, a deep understanding exists as to how dogs possess a unique and powerful healing quality. Passionate about the way that dogs enhance our human lives, gummi aims to deliver dogs all of the elements that enhance theirs. As part of their relaunch, gummi was looking for an organisation to meaningfully contribute to – and Delta Therapy Dogs could not be more aligned.
As part of this partnership, the gummi team will become actively involved with Delta Therapy Dogs. This includes Nat taking her own dog, Wally, through the assessment and training process to (hopefully) become a therapy dog.
We’re excited to roll out a series of initiatives to help promote and expand Delta’s incredible work.
