Pets on Parade

If there's one thing our wonderful volunteers have in common, aside from their willingness to give their time and energy to the Northern Beaches community, it's a passion for their pets. Last year, as part of our National Volunteer Week celebrations, we feature in words and photographs 12 volunteers from Northern Beaches Community Connect's member organisations and their beloved pets. Click on the photos to read their amusing, inspiring and heartwarming stories.

Photographs by Jeff Dawson and words by Susan Milne, who volunteered their time and professional expertise.
