LinkPETS getting Brutus off the couch!

brutus

Brutus is a big, bold and beautiful French Mastiff x Staffordshire Terrier who lives with Libby his owner.

Libby is visually impaired and finds it difficult to exercise Brutus. However, Libby was keen to change this and registered with the LinkPETS program to see if someone could help.

Brutus has since been matched with two newly retired, pet-loving volunteers and he is now officially off the couch and getting the exercise he desperately needs!

Libby has seen first hand the difference that LinkPETS has made to their lives.

“LinkPETS is a fantastic service, and the volunteer dog walkers are amazing and have their own special bond with my baby”.

It’s not only dogs that the LinkPETS program can help with – we also care for cats too! Our volunteers can assist with cat clean-ups, basic grooming and general support to help people care for their pet.

Do you or someone you know, need help caring for their pet? For more information, please call our LinkPETS Coordinator on 1300 552 509 or via www.linkhc.org.au
