In order to help those suffering from clinical depression, anxiety disorder, or want help in reducing social isolation and enhancing their wellbeing, Honeybell Lollipop is here!

Bringing Cheers & Joy, the Honeybell Way!
Honeybell is a Golden Retriever, a Lund family pet who is training to be the first therapy dog specifically trained to work in Australian Neighbourhood House. She is a part of the Morwell Neighbourhood House, a local organisation aiming to advance the public and social welfare of the Morwell community and its surroundings.

Honeybell, being the cute and adorable dog that she is, can easily uplift the mood of those who are feeling isolated, lonely or distressed. If you ask any pet owner (or if you have been a pet owner in the past), you’ll know the joy that comes with spending time with an animal companion.

After all, when it comes to Honeybell, her favourite thing in the whole world is to snuggle. And snuggling with a furry friend has numerous mental and physical health benefits.
