Community Care

Supporting the Community

Dame Jane Goodall, the primatologist and anthropologist once said ‘What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make’. At Wilston Vet, we support our local community and animal welfare organisations to make a difference and positive impact to the lives of the people and animals in our community.

Making a Difference in the Community

Pets in the Park:
Wilston Vet supports Pets in the Park, a national charity whose mission statement is to ensure the veterinary health and welfare of companion animals and the wellbeing of their owners together who are experiencing homelessness. Our veterinarians volunteer at the Pets in the Park community days providing free veterinary care and preventative health products to the companion animals of people experiencing homelessness. Wilston Vet also provides donations raised through vaccinations to Pets in the Park.

Wilston Vet are proud supporters of the RSPCA services and fundraising events. Wilston Vet make donations via hosting the annual RSPCA Cupcake Day, donating to the Bushfire and Flood appeals and donating our time and expertise in treating injured wildlife before they are transferred to RSPCA care.

Wilston Vet treats all injured wildlife completely free of charge to both the good Samaritan who brings the wildlife into the clinic and the wildlife carer who continues their care at home. All injured wildlife are treated and assessed for suitability to be released following treatment back into the wild, released into the care of a registered wildlife carer, or transferred to RSPCA care.

Community Events and Fundraising Activities:
Wilston Vet actively supports local schools and council programs by donating to their various fundraising events and activities. This includes sponsoring the animal education exhibit at Windsorfest and supporting the Brisbane City Council Sedgley Dog Park community event. Wilston Vet are also involved in raising and donating funds for the Animal Welfare League, RSPCA, Guide Dogs and Pets in the Park.

Our vets volunteer their time visiting local kindergarten and childcare centres upon request to help educate the youngest generation on animal care and safety.

Wilston Vet actively participates in sustainable practices regarding recycling and utilising electronic reminders and receipts. We are always seeking to reduce our environmental impact and improve our sustainability measures.
