Mildura Loves Pets Program with RSPCA VIC

Mildura Loves Pets is a program designed by the RSPCA VIC specifically to assist residents of the Mildura area in caring for their pets.

Working with local vet clinics, the RSPCA VIC plans to tackle Parvovirus in the region with free dog vaccination events. We’re aiming to vaccinate just over 2500 community dogs by the end of 2022 – calculated to achieve herd immunity.

More info here.

We’re seeking volunteers to assist their veterinary teams over several weekend trips.

Provisions – all expenses while at the event will be covered, including:

  • Meals
  • Accommodation
  • Return travel from Tullamarine airport to Mildura
  • Designated on-site coordinator
  • Complimentary VBB scrub top
  • All consumables and facilities required to undertake the work
  • Insurances: professional indemnity (by VBB), volunteer workers cover (by RSPCA-VIC), public liability (by VBB & RSPCA-VIC)

Westside Desexing Clinic

A not-for-profit veterinary clinic providing affordable pet desexing

WCD’s vision is to eliminate unnecessary euthanasia by reducing the number of unwanted cats and kittens entering shelters and pounds.

In the Western Metropolitan region of Melbourne there are approximately  60,000 – 80,000 unowned (stray) cats and 180,000 owned cats. Approximately only 20% of the owned cats are registered with councils and desexed.

VBB is seeking veterinarians to assist WCD in providing low cost desexing services to community members and rescue groups.

This program is suited for volunteers who wish to commit to a regular (weekly/fortnightly/monthly) deployment – although not mandatory.
