YP Vets is committed to contributing to our community in many forms. Not only do our vets make themselves available for 24/7 emergency care, but we provide vets and nurses for local agricultural shows, pet show judging and horsejumping events.
We accept years 11 and Year 12 students interested in a career as veterinary nurses or veterinarians for work experience. We accept veterinary nurse interns from TAFE, and veterinary students with practical placements to complete their studies.
Our school and kindy visits with animals are hugely popular. The focus of the PetEd program, provided free of charge, is to promote responsible pet ownership, and safety around dogs and other animals.
Our staff participate in fundraising events, such as RSPCA Cupcake Day and Million Paws Walks.
YP Vets is pleased to sponsor local sporting groups such as bowling clubs, little athletic and golf clubs.
Wildlife brought in by the public is treated free of charge.
We work with many other rescue groups including the Greyhound Adoption Program.
All in all, we are proud members of our community, we stay in touch, support our local causes and businesses, and plan to continue our involvement in all sorts of events in future years.
