Sharing the love: local veterinarians pave the way for compassionate and humane treatment of stray animals in China.

Four big-hearted Melbourne veterinarians and vet nurses are launching a campaign in support of Vets for Change, an international program that aims to tackle the growing problem of stray dogs and cats in China in a sustainable and compassionate way.

Having seen first-hand the huge number of stray animals and their inhumane treatment in Chinese cities, veterinarians Dr Elaine Ong from Box Hill Veterinary Hospital and Dr Chris Barton from Montmorency and Eltham Central Veterinary Hospitals, and vet nurses Robyn Ireland and Ann Letch, have become Australian leaders for Vets for Change.

Together they have launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise $50,000 for Vets for Change, which will train overseas vets and vet nurses to treat and de-sex stray animals in China. Through modern vet training and an education-based approach, this program directly tackles the over-population of stray animals and their inhumane culling, as well as changing attitudes towards stray animals in China.

A major part of their fundraiser is the opportunity to attend a vegan buffet lunch with inspirational guest speaker, Ms Lyn White, A.M., from Animals Australia, who will speak about leadership in animal welfare.

Vets for Change is run by UK charity ACTAsia, which educates students, consumers and veterinary professionals to make humane choices, and act compassionately to improve animal welfare.
