Sophie’s Legacy Campaigns

Following the death of Sophie, a daughter, a sister, a friend, we raised almost $50,000 on GoFundMe and established Sophie’s Legacy, determined to honour Sophie and the generous donors to her legacy by campaigning for change in the industry.

Check out our other campaigns/events helping us raise awareness and funding to continue to making a difference.


We’d like to extend our thanks to all those helping us!

Sophie’s Legacy

Beloved vet Dr Sophie Putland, 33, tragically took her own life in September 2021, after industry pressures and client abuse became too much.

Vets are four times more likely to die by suicide than the general population. On average, a vet dies by suicide every 12 weeks.

We, Sophie’s family and friends, established Sophie’s Legacy to take action to reduce this statistic.
