Life is better with companion animals

 

LIFE IS BETTER WITH COMPANION ANIMALS

You know it, I know it … and Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist, Edith Wharton, described it perfectly when she said 'My little dog - a heartbeat at my feet'.

On the program we hear from people who are passionate about the benefits of including animals in our community.

DAWN PERRY talks to us about THE WALKING WOOF CLUB, a Port Phillip Community Group initiative that assists people and their dogs to get a good dose of social interaction each week, boosting the health and well-being of all.

SARAH DAVISON, urban planner and founder of PLANNING FOR ANIMALS, talks about the importance of considering animals when designing our cities and environments ­http://www.planningforanimals.com.au/
