We are so lucky to have a number of partners and sponsors who support us through their work - and we would love it if you could share the word about the amazing businesses below! By supporting them, you're supporting us too!
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!) In 2012, The Unusual Pet Vets founder, Dr James Haberfield, identified a need for cutting edge and high standards of veterinary care to be accessible and exclusive to exotic pets and their owners. 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.
Vetafarm has a passion to produce health solutions that directly improve the quality of life for all animals, while educating and understanding their human caretakers. Vetafarm provides service and creates opportunities for animals and their carers across the globe. We pride ourselves on our passionate team and our desire to innovate and apply quality in all that we do. Our focus on innovation has allowed us to build our own laboratory with the highest national accreditation, dedicate a farm to grow wheat and fescue for our products, build a print shop for our labels, employ internal engineers and more. Our work allows us the privilege of connecting people with their animals – from pet owners, veterinarians, carers and animal lovers everywhere.
Hotel Rat is a small business that operates in Queensland, Australia. Most rat owners know that there isn't really that much out there in terms of foraging and enrichment toys for rats, and Hotel Rat found themselves using toilet rolls, cardboard boxes, and miscellaneous toys to hide treats in for their ratties. Before long they started to design their own toys and use a 3D printer to bring their ideas to life! Hotel Rat foraging toys provide mental enrichment and challenging stimulation for your ratties. All toys are made from 100% recycled PETG plastic and 3D-printed in Australia.
