At the Haberfield Veterinary Hospital we have a keen sense of our connection to the community, both locally and at large. Our support for the local community extends from the service we are so pleased to be able to give to our clients, (some of whom have been with us since we opened our doors in 1975), to various local community groups and institutions such as our schools. We are very honoured by the loyalty of our many clients, who appreciate that all members of staff at the Haberfield Veterinary Hospital are keenly interested in doing their utmost to ensure that all animals receive the best possible level of veterinary care within a supportive community context.
Australian Veterinary Association Animal Welfare Trust (supporting animal welfare research).
Pets in the Park (caring for the pets of people experiencing homelessness)
Kyeema Foundation (working with communities globally to tackle poverty, environmental degradation and building better lives).

Cats registered by 1 July 2020
Cats kept for breeding purposes by members of recognised breeding bodies.
Cats that cannot be desexed. A veterinary certiﬁcate is required. The vet can update the desexing information and exemption directly onto the NSW Pet Registry. This needs to be done before the cat reaches 4 months of age.
DOGS: Owners of dogs of a restricted breed or declared to be a dangerous dog will be required to pay an annual permit of $195.00 in addition to their one-off pet registration fee with NO exemptions.
By law, lifetime registration for dogs is due by 6 months of age. If you desex your dog before this time you may be eligible for discounted fees at the time of registration. Vets can provide exemptions to desexing. It is not compulsory to desex your dog.
The NSW Govt is in the process of building a new Pet Registry which will allow pet owners to register cats and dogs, update contact details, report missing pets, transfer ownership and pay lifetime registration fees.
