Mental Health in NE Victoria

WKODC is a huge advocate of bringing mental health issues out of the closet and providing assistance for those in the NE Victorian community in enjoying a better and more fulfilled life.

This is our main experience in animal training. We have created a partnership with many sponsors and are trying to raise as many funds as possible to assist in training our trainers to become Assistance Dog Trainers and Assessors. This will be in partnership with Mind Dogs to provide the community with a less expensive option for Recognised Assistance Dogs to help with whatever mental health issue they are struggling with.

If you would like to assist or provide sponsorship or funding, please email with your contact details, and we will contact you to create a relationship to help all the community in NE Victoria.
