Community Care

Winston Churchill once famously said-

“You make a living by what you get but you make a life by what you give.”

This is a principle which we aspire to at Wilston Vet. We believe in supporting the local community that supports us, as well as supporting those communities further abroad who are less fortunate than ourselves. As a small business we aim to be profitable not only to provide our staff and their families with income, but also to use our profits to help other people and animals. Our clients are thereby supporting the wider community through our philanthropic efforts, whether they know it or not. (see below)

Assistance Dogs (ASDOGSNQ)

The Association of Assistance Dogs is a non profit organisation operated by a dedicated team of volunteers who provide Assistance dogs to assist children and individuals with disabilities to achieve greater independence. Wilston Vet provides veterinary services to assistance dogs in our local area completely free of charge.


Volunteer Work

Kelly, One of our veterinary nurses, donated 6 weeks of her own holiday time during April-May to volunteer at the Esther Honey Foundation (EHF) in the Cook Islands. Wilston Vet  generously funded her return air fare, and many of our clients also kindly donated funds which were used in a direct monetary donation to the foundation. The EHF is the only veterinary clinic for the Cook Islands’ thousands of companion animals and it treats all of the companion and stray animals free of charge.  Wherever EHF provides service, all animals, whether homeless or with owners, receive comparable care and no healthy animal is euthanased


Environmental Awareness

We are taking up the Environmental Challenge. The Queensland Government (Department of Environment and Resource Management) has agreed to help 20 veterinary surgeries go through the process of becoming more sustainable. Wilston Vet has secured a place in this project.



Wilston Vet participates in the Annual RSPCA Cupcake Day every year. This year (2019) we raised over $750! Wilston Vet also donated over $450 to the RSPCA flood appeal of 2011. All monies generated from hydrobaths for the 6 weeks following the floods went directly toward the appeal.
