Rescue Dogs Rescuing people

Panda Paws Healing with Hounds was established in 2018 by Pandora Chippindall, and is the first Animal Assisted Therapy programme utilising dogs (greyhounds specifically), in the mid north coast and northern rivers of New South Wales. Pandora’s inspiration for starting Pandas Paws Healing with Hounds came from her own dog Hudson, who developed a wonderful bond with her retired neighbour Jim. Hudson would visit Jim daily for an hour or so keeping him company as he worked in his shed or did the gardening, this special relationship resulted in Hudson’s treats being on Jim’s weekly shopping list! Thus, the vision for Pandas Paws Healing with Hounds was born: To create a business that’s primary purpose is to utilise the unique bond that exists between humans and dogs to provide a genuine empathetic therapy service.
