Pets In The Park is a national charity dedicated to promoting the veterinary health and welfare of companion animals of people who are experiencing homelessness.


For individuals facing homelessness, their circumstances are seldom a matter of choice but rather a result of complex social factors, marginalisation, and isolation within our community. This reality often leads to a very challenging and exclusionary existence. For those living with pets, the welfare of these companions and the human-animal bond play a crucial role in owners' lives; the benefits of this bond are numerous, offering unconditional love, companionship, emotional support, and security. These elements contribute significantly to the social, emotional, and physical health and wellbeing of individuals, fulfilling basic human needs that may otherwise go unmet.


While pet ownership brings immense joy and enrichment to the lives of those experiencing homelessness, it also comes with substantial financial challenges. Too often, owners sacrifice their own welfare to ensure the health of their beloved companions. This is where Pets In The Park steps in.

Recognizing that love alone cannot cover veterinary expenses, there exists a genuine and pressing community need for a service dedicated to providing care for the pets of people experiencing homelessness. To address this need, Pets In The Park offers free access to preventative healthcare programs, enabling homeless individuals to care for their pets while supporting their own wellbeing. The organisation operates as a national community of local clinics, relying on volunteerism, public donations, and corporate support to deliver its programs.
