About this organisation

Gillian’s Rainbow Bridge was established in loving memory of Gillian, in order to continue Gill’s Legacy of caring for animals and children. 

We are called Gillian’s Rainbow Bridge, because in her role as a vet nurse in the Yarra Valley, Gill frequently supported clients when their beloved pets were put to sleep. She would write to them, including a poem called Rainbow Bridge. It is because of this compassionate act, and reverence for life, that Gillian’s Rainbow Bridge was so named.

The organisation is run by a dedicated team of members, with a mix of community development, animal welfare and business skills.

Gillian’s Rainbow Bridge has been registered by the Australian Tax Office as an income tax exempt charity that has deductible gift recipient status
