Cherished Pets Foundation is a registered charity that exists to connect communities through pets.
Our inaugural community pet care project launched its pilot in April 2015. We offer home-based community pet care services and accessible social solutions to people living with disabilities or mental illness, the elderly or those experiencing insecure housing or family violence in the Greater Geelong Region and the Bellarine Peninsula.
We believe in the power of pets to help people maintain their independence, health, and wellbeing. However, in many cases the ability of people to adequately care for their pets is compromised, not through a lack of love, but through a change of capacity. Through our project we will seek to support companion pet ownership in this very special community sector by supervising the ongoing health management of the pet as well as providing pet transfers and supported visitation for owners, given that their situation permits it.
Amongst other provisions, our crisis support division endeavors to provide immediate respite for the pets of people experience housing insecurity or fleeing violence. This allows for the security and safety of the pet, whilst also assuring the peace of mind of their owner, encouraging them to focus on their more immediate circumstances.
