Volunteer dog walking service provided by Balwyn Evergreen Centre

Dog Walking

INDIVIDUAL SOCIAL SUPPORT

If you live in Boroondara and are struggling to walk your dog due to physical or cognitive decline, Balwyn Evergreen Centre is here to help.


We offer a dog-walking service, which is part of our volunteer program, to ensure Boroondara's K9 companions continue to be exercised and socialised. Our volunteers can also help with basic grooming –
brushing and washing – if needed.


Both our clients and volunteers benefit from making important new connections and often forge lasting friendships.


This service is part of the:

  • Commonwealth Home Support Package (CHSP) for those aged 65 and over

  • State Government Home and Community Care Program (HACC) for those aged under 65 


All our volunteers undergo a screening and induction process.
For more information on what this service involves and how to access it, please contact us today on 03 9836 9681 or
email volunteer@balwynevergreen.org.au.

WHEN:
Customised to suit volunteer, owner and dog


SUITABILITY: Ages 55 and over

COST: Included as part of the Commonwealth Home Support Package (CHSP) or State Government Home and Community Care Program (HACC).
