At Collaroy Vets we are proud to be supporters of Monika's Doggie Rescue, a private registered charity that saves, rehabilitates and re-homes dogs from pounds that otherwise face an uncertain future. For many years Monika Biernacki and a group of volunteers have been rescuing dogs and successfully re-homing them with permanent and loving owners. Dogs rescued from the pound are microchipped, heartworm tested and vaccinated, and given a basic health check. The dogs are desexed (if required) and given any additional veterinary treatment to return them to good health. All of the rescued dogs are then cared for, awaiting adoption into a permanent loving home. Once the dogs have completed 8-10 days quarantine (for observation) they are placed into a foster home. On average three dogs per day find new homes and at any one time there are over 200 dogs up for adoption. Over a year about 1000 dogs are saved. Cats, rabbits and guinea pigs are not forgotten and will all be cared for.
