Partnership Opportunities in 2021

Yes, we did it!

Our friendly, cuddly and cute dogs raised awareness for mental health in our community by challenging and changing attitudes towards mental health by embracing a holistic approach to address mental health and wellbeing at home, work and school. Pawsitive Steps 2019 brought an array of programs that not only delivered fun, fitness and health but also educated the public on some key issues around mental health and dogs. Be part of a cause that assists communities and organisations to remove the stigma of mental health. We have an amazing line-up in 2021 and looking forward to your kind support.
