Mid last week, we shared that we had made the difficult decision to close our Shelter to the public: a decision which we are confident will not only protect our invaluable staff but also ensure we can continue to care for abandoned and surrendered cats in need, both in the immediate and longer term.
We did also want to confirm that our Vet Clinic is also closed to the public during this time. We have a reduced Veterinary Team working to help care for the small number of cats still at our Shelter and those cats who arrive at our Shelter under emergency circumstances before they can be placed into Foster Care.
Should you require any medication or veterinary advise during this period, we recommend that you contact your Local Vet or Veterinary Hospital for after-hours Emergencies.
We recommend the following Clinics:
Eltham Veterinary Practice
644 Main Road, Eltham (open until 7pm 7 days)
Emergency Services operating 24/7 within the Metropolitan areas include:
Centre for Animal Referral & Emergency (CARE) Collingwood9417 6417
Advanced Vet Care Kensington 9092 0400
Bundoora Animal Hospital 9467 2255
Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time
