Cherished Pets Foundation is a registered charity that exists to connect communities through pets.
We know that people prioritise the health and wellbeing of their pets over their own, exposing themselves to significant physical, psychological and social risks.
And we know that companion animals are a vital part of healthy, connected communities. Research highlights the remarkable benefits of the human-animal bond in enhancing physical, mental, and social wellbeing.
However, these very bonds can prevent individuals from seeking the help they desperately need.
The good news is this is where Cherished Pets makes a transformative impact.
Our Social Veterinary Service offers immediate support and vital veterinary services to vulnerable individuals and their pets during crises, removing the agonising choice between their wellbeing and their beloved pets.
Our inaugural community pet care project launched 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 domestic and family violence in the Greater Geelong Region and the Bellarine Peninsula.
Our vision goes beyond individual pets and their people; it envisions a comprehensive transformation that ripples through our society. But we need your help.
