Vets For Compassion

Established in 2016, Vets For Compassion is an Australian based not-for-profit organisation with a mission to improve animal welfare. All members of the Vets For Compassion team are volunteers. The highly trained team of veterinarians, vet nurses, wildlife darters and rescuers respond to call outs at all hours of the day to perform life-saving surgery, rescue, rehabilitation, relocating and re-homing as well as provide emergency animal rescue assistance and disaster response here in Australia and around the world.

Vets For Compassions relies on the generosity of its supporters whose donations enable them to alleviate the suffering of animals in need of help. The team works with the optimum level of resource efficiency, ensuring every dollar raised goes directly to saving precious animals.
