Our commitment to local cat charities
Did you know the Ark Animal Hospital is the main supporter of Top End Rehoming Inc? This Darwin and Katherine based pet rescue organization is specialized in rehoming cats and kittens. In 2016 we donated more than $30.000 in veterinary services to Top End Rehoming Inc. Most desexings, vaccinations, microchipping and other veterinary service is provided by our vet clinic.
The Ark Animal Hospital also desexed 42 male cats for Darwin Animal Rescue Group.
Ark Aid Inc – Free Desexing program
In 2016 our charity Ark Aid Inc. was successful in applying for two grants to offer free cat desexing for concession card holders. We desexed 220 cats in the Darwin region for free and microchiped 100 of these cats also for free.
In 2017 we have another free 120 free surgery spots for cat speys and cat castrations for concession card holders including pensioners. We also set up a cat education initiative called EveryCat
