Our community involvement
The Bellarine Veterinary Practice, Geelong, team love being part of the vibrant Bellarine Peninsula community. We love the Bellarine’s people, pets, lifestyle and sense of community, that’s why we believe in supporting the communities that support our veterinarian clinics.
We support a number of organisations, sponsor events, send vets to local schools and community clubs to talk about pet ownership and pet responsibility, and raise funds for and awareness of local charities. For us, we are more than just a vet clinic; we are part of the Geelong and Bellarine community.
