Best Mates is a charity that provides free of charge veterinary treatment and emergency pet boarding for people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness and who are struggling in life. They work with the Salvation Army Crisis Centre and Sacred Heart Mission to provide this service.
Any animal lover who has been down in life before understands the value of the human-animal bond. For people who are struggling in life, their animals provide companionship, comfort and the motivation to get their life back on track. It is not unusual for their clients to tell us that they have gone without in order for them to be able to feed their pets. Unfortunately however, the cost of veterinary care is beyond them - this is where Best Mates comes in!
The program was set up by myself, Dr Jason Rapke, and the team at my clinic, with the aim of helping the most vulnerable and needy in the community.
