They come into our care sick, injured, frightened and in pain. Their stories are heart-wrenching – these vulnerable animals may have survived unimaginable cruelty and neglect, or were perhaps left to fend for themselves on the streets for months.
In emergency situations, every second counts. We don’t always have the luxury of time to set up a special appeal for the animals that come to us in most dire need.
That is why we have established the Emergency Vet Fund – to give the South Australian community and animal lovers like you, the opportunity to help animals in critical conditions.
Your donation allows our veterinarian team to get straight to work, providing life-saving emergency treatment and surgery for animals in most desperate need.
When our animal ambulance picks up a patient requiring critical care, driving the distance to our Lonsdale shelter in the South is not always a feasible option. We are grateful for the support of our external veterinarian partners, who assist us in these emergencies.
In these situations, our big-hearted rescue officers are faced with the hardest decisions around the fate of the animal – and their response is always “do whatever you can”.
