Pet Guardians is an initiative of Pet Doctors of Australia. As in human health, medical and surgical advances have resulted in longer life expectancies and improved quality of life for our four legged friends. The cost of delivering these sophisticated treatments has come down over time however the costs overall are significant especially for those on an Aged Pension. Unlike other members of our community, Aged Pensioners, as a group have no capacity to be able to supplement or increase their income to the degree required to meet these costs. Too many times either substantial compromise to the pet’s treatment occurs, or the owner is put into financial duress. Of the existing charities in Australia the RSPCA and Animal Welfare Leagues would be some of the most well-known. Although these organisations do great work, their focus is not on helping owners of pets but rather pets that have been discarded or treated cruelly. As a senior vet at an Animal Welfare League shelter once said “we are a charity for animals, not people.”
Introducing Pet Guardians
Pet Guardians is a not for profit organisation. Our online store is our source of income. Through offering veterinary and pet products online at comparable prices and service to existing online stores, we hope Australian pet owners choose to purchase their products online through Pet Guardians so we can direct the profits to help other Australians less fortunate. Why Aged Pensioners? Although there are other groups in our community that could benefit from the financial support we are hoping to offer, it’s often the Aged Pensioners that we see in Veterinary Hospitals that are the people that sacrifice themselves before their loved ones, sometimes giving up the basics such as food.
We need your help!!!
We believe Pet Guardians is unique to Australia and if not in the world. We aren’t asking for donations all we want is for pet owners to think about buying their supplies from us. They will be able to save money and at the same time help a pet in need and put a smile on a pensioner’s face when their beloved mate returns home. It is a real WIN WIN situation!
