An Australian Animal Charity Helping Animals and Communities
Vets Beyond Borders is an animal charity which deploys volunteer vets, vet nurses and other animal welfare workers to help improve the lives of animals and developing communities around the world.
We prioritise provision of care to homeless animals and those with little or no other access to veterinary care. Our volunteers provide desperately needed veterinary treatment and are actively involved in efforts to humanely control the population of homeless dogs and cats by surgical sterilisation (animal birth control surgery).
In countries where rabies is an ever-present threat to humans and animals, VBB volunteers work tirelessly with animal birth control and anti-rabies immunisation (ABC-AR) projects, dramatically increasing the number of animals that receive such care and reducing the risks of spread of this dreadful, but entirely preventable, disease.
We deliver clinical training courses for personnel working with animal welfare projects overseas and community/school education classes to increase awareness of the importance of kindness to animals.
Across Australia, VBB volunteers stand ready to deliver prompt treatment to animals affected by natural disaster or outbreak of exotic disease.
