Aboriginal Community Veterinary Services (ACVS) is Australia's leading provider of Veterinary Services to Remote Indigenous Communities throughout Australia.
Our staff, based in both Katherine and Alice Springs, visit aboriginal communities throughout Northern Australia ranging from the islands off the tip of Arnhem Land to deep in the heart of Central Australia to the Kimberleys. ACVS's Animal Health Programs (Dogs, Cats and others) are designed to improve the health and well-being of the community's animals and the flow on effects to their owners.
Our staff have been conducting these programs on various communities throughout the Territory and WA for over 30 years, and have extensive experience in the provision of these services to aboriginal communities. ACVS has worked with over 100 communities and ensure that all staff are culturally aware and appropriate.
ACVS also provides out of hours support to remote communities for times of animal health emergencies.
Additionally, ACVS has developed one to three day workshops that teach ways to better develop and implement effective animal health programs that can be run by remote communities. The workshops cover human health impacts, diseases, parasite control, setting up programs and dog program issues. They also cover management of animals in remote communities in natural disasters, and animal first aid. For more information click on the workshop link.
