Providing care for Pets of Patients
Our CARE for Pets program provides assistance to eligible people – Patients with Pets located in the Lower Hunter Region and Central Coast NSW
All of our people are volunteers and we offer short term solutions and pet respite for people who live alone and need medical treatment which prevents them caring for their pet.
“I live alone with my little Maltese and when I had to go into hospital, CARE for Pets was there for me – to mind Missy. Her vaccinations came due and I wasn’t well enough to drive, so a CARE for Pets volunteer drove her to the vets for me. Over a period of months I was in and out of hospital and it gave me peace of mind to know that Missy was being cared for by the devoted foster carers at CARE for Pets but the best part was when I came home – my little dog was placed back in my arms again. Thankyou CARE for Pets!”
