Act and Care is a organisation which provides support services for the Australian community and esp. autistic children and parents to find a suitable companion animal. Here you’ll find FREE advice on how to select your pet.

Due to increased isolation in the living environment and less social interactions, autistic and disabled people in particular have special needs.

Pets contribute to the overall well-being of individuals as they form fundamental bonds to humans resulting in health, social and economic benefits.
