Who are we?

Our motto is “Treating Pets as Part of the Family” and this ethos of pets as a loved and treasured member of the family guides everything we do.

Struggletown is open longer hours to be able to provide you with the service you need, whenever you need it.

Struggletown is very proud to announce that we have won multiple awards including the award for outstanding professional services as well as overall business of the year in 2013, and have again just won the award for outstanding professional services in 2022. This highly aligns with our mission to provide the best possible care and service to the pets and owners of our community, and we are honoured to do so.

The Randwick City Business Excellence Awards are designed to recognise and celebrate outstanding local businesses dedicated to delivering exceptional products and services as voted by the community.

The Awards are held every two years and provide a great opportunity for local organisations to promote their business, build brand awareness and enhance the relationship with their customers.

Award finalists are selected based upon nominations and public voting with the winners chosen by a team of judges who anonymously visit the businesses.

Multiple Winners

Monthly staff training

Because the team Struggletown always pride ourselves on giving both the best and most up to date care for your pet, as well as the amazing customer service to go along with this, we will be closing our doors, and turning our phones off for 2 hrs in the middle of the day for staff training/meetings towards the end of each month so that we are able to service our clients in the best possible way. We will of course re-open like normal at the end of this.

For any critical emergencies during this time please phone the emergency clinic phone number that is on our answering machine. Thank you for your understanding.
