About Lort Smith

Lort Smith was built on its current site in North Melbourne in 1936 by the Animal Welfare League of Victoria. The founder Louisa Lort Smith was passionately committed to caring for the animals of poor and disadvantaged people. Nearly 80 years later, this is still the heart and soul of Lort Smith Animal Hospital.
