Pets and Positive Ageing Inc promotes the significant benefits for older Australians of being able to continue living with their pets in various forms of aged accommodation - retirement villages, hostels, independent living units and low care areas of nursing homes - and when ageing at home. It encourages local community discussions on this issue.
The Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge (Sippy Creek Animal Refuge Society Inc) was established in 1979 to provide temporary refuge and find new homes for abandoned, abused, stray and unwanted cats and dogs. The Refuge is an independent, non-profit, charitable organisation and has a strictly regulated non-euthanasia policy. We also run education programmes for the community on responsible animal ownership.
The mission of The Australian Anthrozoology Research Foundation is to maximise human health through supporting scholarly research in human-animal relationships.
The Tim Fairfax Family Foundation (TFFF) exists to support rural, regional and remote communities in Queensland and the Northern Territory to address the particular challenges they face due to their geographic location.
We aim to achieve this by building the capacity of communities to improve their vibrancy, connectedness, resilience and sustainability.
We focus on initiatives that are locally driven; support leadership; encourage diversity; strengthen community and involve collaboration between both private and public sector partners.
Since September 2017 TFFF have funded Pets for Life
