On Friday 26th June, the Arcare Surrey Hills community had a visit from malamute, Shadow.

Shadow is the beloved dog of residence manager, Shantala, and he enjoyed visiting various clients throughout the day. It didn’t take too long before much of the Surrey Hills community was smitten with the gorgeous Shadow.

Despite his large size, Shadow was very gentle and loving with all the clients, only wanting to have pats and cuddles with them all day long.

Due to the positive feedback after Shadow’s visit, Shantala now hopes to bring Shadow into work with her on a more regular basis, and add him to community’s pet therapy program.
