Community Service & Animal Health Initiatives
Bendigo Animal Hospital and its staff are proud members of the community of Central Victoria. That’s why we believe it's important to support—and give back to—the community in which we live. Motivated by this belief, some years ago we started exploring ways to help worthwhile local causes on a regular basis. The initiative we chose to embrace was donating 100% of the fee for our pet toenail clips. We were greatly encouraged by our first endeavour, which was assisting a local family in raising funds so their son could obtain one of Bendigo's Righteous Pups.
Since that time, we’ve assisted a variety of local charities and not-for-profit organizations and continue to do so. At the time your pet receives a toenail clip, you can see the name of the charity supported by your donation posted in our clinic. Some of the recipients of your donated toenail fee and causes close to our animal-loving hearts include:
- Edgar's Mission
- Wildlife Rescue & Information Services
- Bendigo Food Share
- Aussie Helpers
- Australian Red Cross
- Jemima's Gift
- Meals on Wheels
- Biker Charity Support Group, Inc
- Bendigo Animal Welfare & Community Services, and
- Delta Therapy Dogs.
To date, this program has been enormously successful, and we are proud that so many of our clients have chosen to contribute in such a practical and continuing way to the community to which we jointly belong. Keep current with our local involvement by following Bendigo Animal Hospital's Facebook page, and subscribing to our Blog posts.
All the staff at BAH would like to thank you for your generosity and support!
