Clubs--Social & General South Murwillumbah
Leah Sheldon and Janine Sigley formed the non-profit Story Dogs organisation in Murwillumbah, NSW. At the time both Leah and Janine had primary school aged children. After seeing a similar program operating in the USA on the internet they decided Australia needed such a program. They came up with Story Dogs, based on the successful American literacy program, Reading Education Assistance Dogs.
