Cherished Pets Foundation
Our established and reputable veterinary clinic has been delivering exceptional veterinary care and social services to the community since 2015. As a certified B Corp, we're deeply committed to purpose and business as a force for good.
Engage Our Services
Our compassionate home euthanasia service is one that we have developed with a whole heart and commitment to ensuring a pet can leave this life in the comfort of a familiar environment, in the company of family (if this is desired) and without stress or pain.
Part of our purpose is to support pets and people through end of life. Through our end of pet life service we provide home based guidance and care to people whose pets are in their final life phases. Whether it be a terminal illness or disorders of old age, our quality of life assessments enable us to create dedicated home-based pet care plans to ensure pets are comfortable and pain free through these final days, weeks and months. We offer home hospice pet care and help people prepare for a pet’s passing.
End of Life Service
Through our social enterprise, Cherished Pets Veterinary Services nurtures the human-animal bond contributing to public and animal health and wellbeing.
By offering vital veterinary services and support to vulnerable people we address disadvantage and discrimination and foster increased social cohesion.
Our powerful approach significantly enhances companion animal welfare, addresses financial barriers to promote responsible pet ownership, and fosters social cohesion.
In our community, vulnerable and marginalised individuals who have pets, including those experiencing homelessness, mental health crises, domestic family violence, age-related constraints, or disabilities, often face significant barriers in accessing essential support services.
They're often confronted with an agonising choice between their own wellbeing and the welfare of their cherished pets, leading to profound stress and isolation.
These challenges not only impact individuals but also place added strain on our society.
Cherished Pets Social Veterinary Service offers immediate support and vital veterinary services to vulnerable individuals and their pets. This enhances their quality of life, improves health and wellbeing, reduces isolation, and alleviates financial stress.

We acknowledge the Wadawurrung People of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we are gathered and pay respects to elders past, present and emerging. We recognise their continuing connection to the land, waterways, and community and acknowledge that this land was never ceded.
As an organisation that values the human-animal bond, we endeavour to learn from, and incorporate Indigenous way of knowing and the idea of oneness into our practice, in order to benefit both the land on which we live and all beings residing upon it.
