About Us

Valentine Charlton Cat Centre

The Veterinary Science Foundation is dedicated to supporting animal health and welfare, the education of future veterinarians, and excellence in research.

The Foundation was established in 2000 and supports the Faculty of Veterinary Science vision of innovation and leadership, and ensures its aims for the future are realised.

The Foundation aims to raise awareness of the critical importance of veterinary science to the Australian community - through fostering of the human-animal bond, addressing the need to ensure our rural livestock production industries remain viable, working to conserve our unique native wildlife, and breaking new ground in research.

Our achievements to date

  • The Foundation raised the majority of the funds to complete the construction and fit out of the new University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Sydney. This facility is a world class teaching hospital, veterinary clinic and specialist referral hospital. The most current segment of this project, the Canine Teaching Hospital, was officially opened in May 2008 by Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO, Chancellor of the University of Sydney.
