About the Community Animal Hospital

SCAR is a non-profit, community-based organisation on a BIG mission! Over the years that we have been in operation our priority focus has been the rescuing and rehoming of displaced animals in our community, as much as this focus will remain important for us, we wanted to get to the cause of the problem of why so many companion animals in our community end up in pounds in need rescue in the first place. So the SCAR Community Animal Hospital was created!

SCAR has now opened a low cost animal hospital to provide our community with affordable veterinary options for the care of their pets. We want to make high-quality desexing and veterinary care affordable and accessible to all pet owners. Our full-service, high-quality hospital accommodates medical care ranging from routine vaccinations and health checks, to diagnostics and special surgeries and has a huge emphasis on the desexing of animals and pet ownership education. We have become Hume’s very first non-profit animal hospital, offering pet owners more options when it comes to caring for their pet’s needs.

By bringing your pets to our hospital for care, our clients support the plight of homeless pets as any proceeds from the SCAR Community Animal Hospital benefit the mission and programs at Second Chance Animal Rescue Inc.

The SCAR Animal Hospital will help keep pets in homes by ensuring that any pet owner can afford to desex their pets via our low cost/ high volume model and our full range of accessible payment plans. By keeping veterinary costs as low as possible and running our subsidised desexing events, we are working towards our mission of reduce shelter relinquishment and effectively reducing pet homelessness in Victoria.

At SCAR we offer services via our low-cost clinic; offer customised training and consulting programs to animal welfare organisations Victoria wide; and advocate for strategies and public policy that improve the lives of pets in underserved communities. With our support, animal abandonment and economic euthanasia are now not the only options available to owners in many cases. We are able to offer alternative options where possible to help keep pets healthy, happy and in their homes where they belong.

To make an appointment for your pet to see our veterinary team, please call us on 03) 9357 0834 or visit us at 23 Grasslands Ave, Craigieburn, VIC, 3049.
