Welcome to The Social Hearted Vet, a place for me to muse, share and reflect on my passions and opinions.
I am Dr Lissi – veterinarian of 30+ years, mother, community citizen, activist and advocate.
I care about pets, people and our planet.
I embrace community, connection and collaboration.
I believe that we lead better when we lead from the heart and together.
This website is a space for me to share updates and musings on the topics that are close to my heart including:
- The Human Animal Bond
- One Welfare – where animal health & wellbeing intersects with human health & wellbeing
- Purposeful business and B Corp
- Social Veterinary Work
- Death & Dying – pets and people
- Dr Jane Goodall and her work globally
- Other stuff that matters to me
I am the Founder of Cherished Pets, a unique social veterinary enterprise. Everything I do is toward my purpose to enable the benefits of pets to be accessible to all.
I have been guided and mentored by Dr Jane Goodall, she is the voice in my head.
I am supported, cheered, encouraged and enabled by an awesome community of people, my CP team, friends, family and advisors.
If you love what we do, please donate to the Cherished Pets Foundation.
