RSPCA Victoria works with the community to support better animal welfare and to help prevent cruelty. Check out our latest projects.

Mildura Loves Pets

RSPCA Victoria launched the Mildura Loves Pets program in July 2021.

This initiative aims to support pet owners in the region to improve the welfare of their animals. We have a dedicated Community Liaison Officer in the heart of Mildura and a team of passionate Inspectors who support the region. Through the provision of education and direct support, the focus of this project is now on eliminating canine parvovirus in the Mildura community.

Goals of the Mildura Loves Pets program

Increase awareness about the deadly nature of parvovirus and how it can be easily prevented with vaccinations. Protect animals from illness and death through the provision of free vaccinations at community events or through supplying vaccination vouchers to dog owners Facilitate education sessions for primary schools and human services agencies to create an improved understanding of good animal welfare and how it can be achieved.

Mildura Loves Pets was made possible by a generous bequest from local resident and animal enthusiast, the late Joyce Wells. The MLP initiative honours her love and respect for animals by enhancing the welfare of pets living in the Mildura community.
