Leading animal welfare charity Companion Animal Network Australia (Australia CAN) is proud to announce pet behaviourist and dog trainer Lara Shannon and media announcer and presenter John Deeks as ambassadors of the organisation in its mission to bring people and pets together.

Australia CAN CEO Trish Ennis said she is honoured to welcome the two ambassadors who are supporting the charity’s mission in developing and promoting programs that deliver high welfare standards for companion animals, such as Rent with PetsPets in Aged Care and Pets in Business.

Australia CAN’s Rent with Pets program works to decrease the number of pet surrenders due to archaic rental laws, while bringing landlords and tenants together. The organisation is also working with aged care experts to find ways of preserving the bond between people and pets in the aged care settings. 

“Following the increase of pet ownership during the pandemic lockdowns and the isolation of our senior citizens, it’s more important than ever to support pets in aged care settings as well as workplaces,” Ennis said. 

“Lara and John spend their time and effort increasing the human-animal bond through building public awareness. They embody our values and are totally engaged to support our mission. Both John and Lara are massive talents, and I am honoured to have them join us.”
