Our Vision & Mission
For all people to have access to veterinary care for their companion animals.
To establish facilities that provide affordable, quality veterinary care for companion animals when their owners are experiencing social disadvantage or financial hardship in Central Victoria.
Why we're needed
Based on our research over 15% of companion animals in Mt Alexander Shire and its surrounding regions are missing out on essential veterinary care due to services being financially or physically out of reach for owners.

Robyn and Yvette from the Regional Community Vet Clinic (RCVC) provided amazing care for my elderly mother’s Staffie, Mary.
Mary needed regular eye drops to continue a happy life, and proved to be a very difficult patient especially for my mum. Fortunately for us Robyn stepped in to give Mary her eye drops and at the same time spent many hours every week with my mum, which was a great bonus.
This whole process made me realise just how important it is to take care of the pets of our elderly and how essential the Regional Community Vet Clinic is for the community. Without the RCVC’s help Mary would no longer be with us and mum would have lost her best friend, whereas now Mary is as healthy and happy as can be.
Thank you very much Robyn and Yvette – keep up the good work!
In October 2022 my dog Spot was diagnosed with Diabetes at Castlemaine Veterinary Clinic and remained under observation for two nights.
It was there that I was introduced to RCVC and its volunteers who undertook to help me to care for Spot at home. And so it began – the instructions, advice, countless daily phone calls, car trips to my property, all this to hopefully teach new tricks to an old dog like me “and it worked” not because of my ability but because of the tireless efforts over four months of a volunteer from RCVC.
Her patience, support, wisdom, guidance, common sense, humanity and care did enable this old dog to gain confidence and be able to care for Spot and for this I am grateful.
RCVC this time generously assisted by volunteers from Vets for Compassion, RCVC desexed a total of 28 cats preventing an approximate 400 unwanted kittens being born into the community in the next 12 months.
Join the team from RCVC at Campbells Creek Community Centre from 2pm on Sunday, July 17th for a public information session where you can find out more about the project, ask your questions and meet the faces behind RCVC.
