Journeys : Apr May 2011
The Pet Partner Program run by Delta Therapy Dogs Tasmania visits residential care facilities, nursing homes, children in special schools, organisations who help troubled children, dog shows and festivals. The visits re-establish contact with a companion animal and enhance the quality of life for participants. In less than three years, Delta’s group of North West volunteers has grown from one to 15 teams, while the southern team has 22 dogs and owner volunteers. In recognition of their success to date, in November 2010, the program won the volunteer ing categor y of the Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards. It is with great sadness that we record the passing last September of Colin Moore, a long and respected member of the RACT and the Club’s Northern Regional Advisor y Committee. Colin was in his 55th year of Club membership and his 49th year as a R ACT Insurance and R ACT, through the R ACT Community Fund, are proud to have recently assisted Delta Dogs by providing an outdoor shade shelter. The shelter enables them to deliver infor mation about their services to the community in relative comfor t and in all weather conditions. In Januar y Delta Dogs conducted their first information session in Ulverstone and recr uited 17 interested volunteer ow ner/ dog partners who will now go through an assessment training process before admission in to the Pet Partnership Program. Claire Curtis from Delta Dogs says she is delighted at recruiting so many volunteers in the first infor mation session. We wish them every success with this great community program. Our community fund puts its best paw forward member of the RACT’s Northern Regional Advisory Committee, representing the interests of motorists in Northern Tasmania. He contributed substantially to the activities of the Committee and was heavily involved in many of the major traffic studies undertaken in the late 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, w ith a special interest in the Eastern Bypass studies and the planning and development of Launceston’s Southern Outlet. Colin was highly regarded by all who knew him and we convey our sincere condolences to Mrs Moore and the family.
