Dear Valued clients of the AAPS Veterinary Clinic,
It is with deep regret that we need to inform you that the Australian Animal Protection vet clinic will be temporarily closed as of April 14th, 2018.
The Department of Education have purchased our site in Keysborough to build a school and we must vacate the property by April 16, 2018. Our new premises, at 295 Perry Road Dandenong South, is in the planning stage with Council and it is our intention to get the new AAPS built as quickly as possible. This will include a new vet clinic that will deliver the same high level service and care to our clients, your pets and the community.
To avoid closure of the entire shelter, we sought a transitory home, so we could continue our mission to rescue and rehome animals. Our temporary home is located at 130 Bangholme Rd, Dandenong South but unfortunately due to zoning regulations, the site will not be able to accommodate a commercial vet clinic, hence the reason for the temporary closure of the Outpatient Vet Clinic.
This situation is not ideal, but it is a decision we needed to make to avoid complete closure of the Shelter and will allow us to continue to rescue and rehome the animals who need us. We have exhausted every possible opportunity in an aim for continuity, but this outcome has been unavoidable. We are extremely sympathetic to all staff that these temporary closures effect, and to you, our valued clients and your beloved pets.
Our veterinary staff are a highly skilled group of professionals and have been an amazing part of the AAPS team. It is extremely unfortunate that we were unable to have them relocate with us and the Committee of Management wishes them all the very best in both their personal and professional lives.
We would like to take this opportunity to truly thank everyone who has supported our clinic over the years it has been greatly appreciated. We look forward to your support once our new facility is operational and should you need access to any of your animal’s history please contact our office.
If you have any queries regarding this information, you are welcome to email the Committee on firstname.lastname@example.org
