Every year Lort Smith supports some of our community’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged pets and their carers.

Did you know that by simply bringing your pet to our Animal Hospital, you are: providing your pet with expert care; offsetting the cost of vet care to people experiencing hardship; and contributing to the rehabilitation of vulnerable animals? Thank you for just being a client.

Below are some additional ways you can get involved and support us so we can continue our important work caring for sick, injured and vulnerable animals.


Lort Smith is fortunate to have the support of more than 380 volunteers from diverse backgrounds. All share a love of animals and a desire to help their community.
