About Our Organisation
Animal Companions Inc is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity based in Western Australia. It was established in October 2002 by a dedicated team of volunteers, whose desire was to share the joy of their dogs with people in need in the community. We began with just nine members and with financial support from three generous benefactors, whose assistance has helped the organisation to flourish.
Our members are animal lovers who come from all walks of life. Many of them work, have family or other commitments; some are retired. The majority of our members are dog owners, but you don’t have to own a dog to join us as a Friend of Animal Companions.
Our canine companions are all ages, shapes and sizes, from Chihuahuas to Great Danes and everything in between. Any dog can become an Animal Companion, provided they are well socialised and meet our accreditation requirements.
