All of us here in the type+writer Creative Solutions team LOVE animals! We do what we can to support some of our local animal assistance organisations and invite you to visit their websites and lend a hand where you can too.
The Victorian Animal Aid Trust (Animal Aid) is dedicated to the care of all lost, unwanted and abused animals, and is bound by the Code of Practice for Animal Shelters.
There are lots of ways you can help Animal Aid. Volunteering time or donating food, blankets, towels, etc are a great help. But the reality is that that Animal Aid needs money to be able to keep it's doors open. All the money donated to Animal Aid goes directly towards providing the animals at the shelter with the best in care and opportunities to find new furever homes and loving families.
The Pet Medical Crisis Fund has been created to help pensioners and disadvantaged pet owners who cannot afford surgery to keep their family pet alive.
The PMCF is 100% volunteer run and no administration costs are taken from public donations. The Fund aims to make all donations 100% effective by getting every cent to go directly to pay 'at-cost' veterinary fees to save a loved pet.
Donations are made directly into the treating vet's account after treatment has taken place. No funds are ever paid directly to owners.
The Rabbit Run-away Orphanage is a non-profit organisation run by a small and dedicated group of volunteers.
The Orphanage receives no government funding and is reliant on donations and fundraising.
The Rabbit Run-Away Orphanage provides care for sick, unwanted, stray or mistreated rabbits. Providing short-term care, medical treatment, rehabilitation and long-term housing solutions. They work hard to prevent the unnecessary euthanasia and to discourage cruelty.
