Lort Smith believes that every animal deserves the best care available and as demand for our services continues to grow our current facilities are pushed to their limits. We need to enhance and expand to ensure Lort Smith can continue to help animals and their carers, as well as the vulnerable and disadvantaged members of our community.
So, we are redeveloping our existing site in North Melbourne to:
- Build new and improved facilities which will allow us to expand our emergency and surgical services, providing better and more complex veterinary care
- Invest in veterinary research to extend our knowledge and capabilities in animal health and wellbeing
- Build strong foundations for our future by maximising our expertise and expanding the range of services we provide to a broader market.
Lort Smith is a not-for-profit organisation that receives no ongoing government funding – it is the generous support of people like you that enables us to continue providing our vital services. Join us as we enter a new and exciting chapter in the history of Lort Smith.
Our ‘Our Future Is In Your Hands Capital Campaign’ will enable us to provide more animals with lifesaving care, support their carers and preserve the human-animal bond for marginalised, disadvantaged and vulnerable people in our community.
