Our Friends

Our Friends 2018-10-19T04:31:40+00:00

We gratefully acknowledge the following organisations, people or businesses, who support us either financially, or with donated services and products. Our work would not be possible without them! A huge thank you to:

The Angel Fund

The Angel Fund exclusively sponsor joey Angel, who we named after them. We thank Ayesha, Nada and Tony for their encouragement and support for our work.

Casey’s Beach Veterinary Clinic

Dr Sean Harrison and Dr Beth Miller must be acknowledged for providing great care to many wildlife in our region. We personally thank them for consultations provided and all the support and consistent help and advice via email from Sean – he’s a legend. Our rescue cats are also clients of this wonderful practice.

Dragon Energy Portal

You might not be into in the spiritual side of life, but without Hillary Harris, Frankie may not be alive today. Hillary donates her time and talents assisting us to find lost joeys or help aid sick ones and plays a big part in our lives. She’s a wonderful animal communicator and we’re very grateful to her.

Fresh Promotional Products Australia

Every year Fresh Promotions allocates 20% of their marketing budget to support Australian charities and community groups. Thanks to Fresh for donating our lapel pins which we sell to raise money for our work and give to our sponsors and volunteers

The Pet Grocer

Janine & Jason operate a unique pet store in Melbourne, and have supported our work with both wildlife and domestic animals since day one. We thank them for their donations of products and for donating to us monthly via the Wild 2 Free sponsor program. THANK YOU GUYS!

Resting Pets

Animal lovers Jonathan and Susan operate with the utmost sensitivity when dealing with our loss of a joey. We love that they’re local and we love that they care so much and make the entire experience a little easier. We’re so grateful to them both.

Rosie Lane & Friends

When Rosie Lane in Auckland saw our photos on Instagram, she kindly offered to sew a few pouches for us. This developed into a massive project in which Rosie enlisted a group of friends: Julie Patterson (Star Sewer); Shauna Eldridge (Star Sewer); Janet Miller, Margaret Daube, Rachel Lane, Becky Lane & Bryony Acraman. The group met a number of times, creating hundreds of stunning soft lined perfectly made pre-shrunk pouches and hanging bags for the joeys. They’re so perfect, we don’t want to use anything else now! They made patterns for us too, so if you’re ever inclined to do some sewing, please get in touch for a copy of the patterns!

Sony Music Australia

A record company known for their heart, who have been incredibly supportive of our work. We’re very grateful to Dennis, Emmanuel and the entire Sony Music Australia Team.

Southern Cross Wildlife Care

Glenda and Dr Howard Ralph do incredible work saving the lives of animals who would potentially face euthanasia otherwise. If it can be fixed, Dr Ralph will fix it. Their hospital is not something we take advantage of, we will only go there to request their valuable time, resources and knowledge if there’s no alternative and we believe an animal’s life will be saved as a result.

STAR Stitchers

STAR Stichers provide joey liners and pouches to registered wildlife carers in need all over Australia. They were the first point of call when our house burnt down and we had no supplies. Not to worry – a huge package arrived soon after and the joeys were warm and cozy thanks to them.

Superdry

Brand Collective and Superdry sent us enough boxes of Super warm Superdry hoodies, to keep us and our volunteers cozy every winter morning for life. We’re so grateful to them, it’s made the outside cleaning and poo pick up in the AM much easier to deal with.

Therian Animal Solutions

Therian are the Australian Distributor for Kuranda Dog Beds. The extra tough & durable shelter quality beds we use for the joeys here. After our old dog beds died and we ran a Winter Appeal to raise funds for more, Therian also got on board with a big discount and provided a couple of freebies, enabling us to ensure all beds were replaced, along with comfy canvas toppers. Now in use, we’re pleased to say that they were a very worthy purchase and come with full kangaroo approval.

Tame & Wild Studio

Animal photographer Peter Sharp, donates his time and talents several times a year. He drives all the way from Sydney and stays a few days at a time, capturing quality photos of the joeys in care for our use. Many of his photos adorn our website and are sent to joey sponsors. Our upcoming 2019 calendar will mostly feature his work.

Wildlife Rescue South Coast

Sayo & Rae care for wildlife under license by Wildlife Rescue South Coast. A wonderful organisation who support us with knowledge and and through whom we’ve made wonderful new friendships. Their volunteers are dedicated and their phones operate 24/7 to rescue native wildlife, from Wollongong all the way down to the Victorian border.
