Your donation to AMRRIC goes directly to the programs being delivered with remote Indigenous communities to improve the health and wellbeing of companion animals, contributing to healthier, safer and happier communities.
AMRRIC assists communites and shires with animal management by coordinating veterinary programs which focus on desexing and anti-parasite treatment in remote Indigenous communities.
AMRRIC believes that the key to improving animal welfare lies in the education and empowerment of local community members. AMRRIC’s education programs fall into two main areas – community education and schools education. Each supports and complements the other.
One Health Programs
AMRRIC One Health programs are an integrated veterinary service and education program. Our One Health approach recognises the inextricable links between human, animal and environmental health and wellbeing.
Animal Management Worker Program
AMRRIC’s Animal Management Worker program has been a three year pilot program, funded by the Aboriginals Benefit Account (ABA), aiming to implement sustainable, community based responses to companion animal management. The program contributes to improved animal, environmental and human health in remote communities in the Northern Territory.
Staying Safe Around Dogs
AMMRIC recognises that whether you’re in community to live, work or visit, it’s helpful to have the skills to manage interactions with free roaming dogs so you feel confident and safe. These videos discuss dog behaviour and body language, and how to recognise the danger signs and avoid getting bitten.
AMRRIC recognises that ethical, culturally sensitive research can result in significant and tangible benefits for both Indigenous communities and their companion animals. We also value the benefits of the involvement of Indigenous people as full partners in research projects. Such collaboration builds capacity both within communities and of Indigenous researchers, institutions and organisations, and is a model that AMRRIC strongly supports.
