Good Sorts: Wanaka woman aims to brighten up people’s days with pet therapy programme

Janine Taylor is the founder of a pet therapy programme in Wanaka looking to brighten up people’s days by bringing her dogs into schools, libraries and rest homes.

When Taylor moved from Kerikeri to Wanaka she noticed there was nowhere for her and her dog to volunteer so she started the programme and took to the streets to recruit more people to join her.

The programme started with just her and her dog Sharna - there's now 16 that work with her all around Wanaka.
