We are so lucky to have a number of partners and artist collaborators who support us through their work - whether that's our fabulous vet team who have helped so many of the residents in our care, our friends at Aussie Pet Collective who stock our hammocks and other fun goodies, or our artist collaborators who donate a percentage of their product sales to the rescue (as well as some of their beautiful items!). Please see below for the full list of our partners and collaborators who help keep the rescue going!
The Unusual Pet Vets
The Unusual Pet Vet provide outstanding patient and client care, whilst setting a standard of excellence in the veterinary medicine and surgery of unusual pets (including our beloved sewer puppies!)

They are our trusted vets, and the ones we recommend to anyone based in Brisbane and surrounding areas. THey also have clinics across the country, so check them out via The Unusual Pet Vets website.
