Volunteer pup Tilly deserves a round of a-paws


Christmas star Matilda (Tilly for short) is at Cabrini Malvern to spread cheer among patients and staff on 3 West.

The popular ‘moodle’ (Maltese / poodle) is a Delta Pet Therapy dog, while her humans, Ken and Kaye, are longtime Cabrini volunteers.

The trio travel from the Mornington Peninsula each fortnight to spend time with patients who would like some company and a friendly chat.

Tilly is one of several Delta dogs who visit Cabrini, making a positive impact on patients’ social, emotional, physical and physiological health, improving quality of life and well-being.

Thank you Kaye, Ken and Tilly for giving your time so generously to lift the spirits of patients, families and staff.
