Robbie - In Memory

Reading Dawg

Robbie was a gorgeous Westie and one of the original Reading Dawgz. Robbie loved people especially when there are tummy rubs on offer! Sadly Robbie passed in 2023 and is missed by everyone who knew him.


Reading Dawg

I’ve been part of the Rainbow Reading Dawgz program since Term 3 2021. Whilst I enjoy reading, my favourite part is the pats and treats, plus it gets me away from my annoying wee sister Alba for an hour. I’m a gentle soul who love humans just as much as my furry friends.

I started with the RPP in 2016. When not volunteering with the RPP, I am a typical Canberra public servant. I have two gorgeous goldies and two fabulous rescue cats, all of whom at incredibly spoilt (although they don't agree with that view!) That is my George in my photo.


Marketing & Events Coordinator

I have been volunteering with RPP for over 7 years. I live with two beautiful Labradors and a cheeky cockatoo and work as a social worker. I love that Rainbow Paws allows me to do something meaningful in my spare time and gives me opportunities to learn new skills.


Reading Dawg Human Volunteer

I have been with RPP since 2021 and love being part of such an amazing program. As Dougal and Alba’s mum, it is so rewarding to see them be part of the reading program and the enjoyment it brings the children. When I’m not working or volunteering with RPP, we make the most of getting away and exploring Australia with our furbabies in tow, wherever we go, they are always included.


Street Support Volunteer

I joined the RPP as a volunteer in June 2021, although I have been supporting RPP for sometime. My biggest passions in life are dogs, that's my dogs Luna and Mowgli in my photo, and swing dancing. I pack up cat and dog food for dropping off at various locations around Canberra as part of the Street Support Program.


Street Support Volunteer

I have been involved for about 10 months. I have worked and volunteered with people at risk of homelessness for the last 10 years and see first hand how important pets are to many of them. I love that I can help with food deliveries for pets of the most vulnerable in our community. I have recently adopted a cheeky rescue Labrador, Nala that is keeping my entire family entertained


Vice President

Like many in Canberra I am a public servant, but when not working I divide my time between volunteering and my interests in art, history and travel. I started with the RPP in 2016.


Reading Dawg

I’m Dougal’s wee sister and I joined the Rainbow Reading Dawgz program in Term 2 2023. I’m a little cheekier than my big brother Dougal, so I had to wait till I was a little older to join the program, but I have quickly fitted into my role as a Reading Dawg and all the kids love me.
