Assistance Dogs Australia is a charity that trains Labradors and Golden Retrievers to help people with physical disabilities. These dogs take two years to train at a cost of over $25,000 each but are given free of charge to people in need.

To raise funds to help cover some of these costs, Assistance Dogs are asking people to register to hold an event with your family, friends, colleagues or neighbours. There are some great ideas for events (organising a Dog’s breakfast or baking and selling pup cakes to Dogs-bowling).

But you’d better get cracking! Put your paw up to help.
