With Valentine’s Day upon us, singles from across the country can rest easier knowing that their PAW-fect partner may be closer than they think.

According to Seeing Eye Dogs’ manager of puppy development Jane Bradley, the not-for-profit will host online and in-person events for Aussies looking to open their hearts to a Seeing Eye Dogs puppy.

“We’re seeking compassionate individuals to fall in-love with giving back by becoming a volunteer puppy carer. With the recent birth of several litters, there are 40 puppies looking to be placed in loving homes as soon as possible,” Jane said.

“Not only do puppy carers play an integral role in the early development and socialisation of Seeing Eye Dogs, but they also provide life-changing support to Australians who are blind or have low vision.”

City-goers in Melbourne’s CBD can drop into 530 Collins Street to ‘speed date’ a Puppy Development Trainer and a Seeing Eye Dog puppy to obtain the information they’ll need to become a volunteer.

For those that aren’t based in Melbourne, the team at Seeing Eye Dogs will run a Facebook Live-stream from its puppy centre so Aussies can tune-in and listen to the experts, while watching adorable puppies play.

To sign up to become a puppy carer and share the love this Valentine’s Day, fill in the application form via the Seeing Eye Dogs website: https://sed.visionaustralia.org/puppy-caring.

ActionAid Australia welcomes Minister Wong’s announcement today of new Australian sanctions on Israeli settlers in the West Bank.

Quotes Attributable to ActionAid Australia Executive Director Michelle Higelin: “We are encouraged to see the Government promptly taking action following the announcement of the International Court of Justice’s historic opinion on the weekend," said Ms Higelin.

Top 1 percent bags over $40 trillion in new wealth during past decade as taxes on the rich reach historic lows

The richest 1 percent have amassed $42 trillion in new wealth over the past decade, nearly 34 times more than the entire bottom 50 percent of the world’s population, according to new analysis by Oxfam today ahead of the third meeting of G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Here in Australia, billionaires have increased their wealth by 70.5% or $120 billion since 2020. Australians are increasingly concerned about this growing inequality and support a wealth tax to address it. This is evidenced by newly released YouGov polling commissioned by Oxfam. The polling shows: 76%…
