Community Wellness is part of our Mission so we get involved however we can to contribute to the vibrant, inclusive and pet loving community that is the Southern Gold Coast. We take work experience students from the local schools and we support local businesses . We also do a bunch of work for local charities and rescue organisations such as AWL (Cat Desexing Program), Cat Rescue Gold Coast, Happy Tails and Cavalier Rescue. Some of our other community activities are below.
Story Dogs Sponsorship
Story Dogs is an amazing organisation that helps kids to gain confidence in reading and in life by giving them a non judgemental ear to listen as they practice their reading. We sponsor Maggie at Coolangatta and we’re currently looking for a new Team for Burleigh Heads State School.
Paws at the Park Silver Sponsor
Paws at the Park is a huge doggie market held each August at Mudgeeraba Showgrounds. This amazing community event brings together dog lovers and dog providers in a fun, festival style atmosphere with workshops, games, food and fun for the whole family! We’re proud to be Silver Sponsors of this event as it aligns perfectly with our mission of Pet Wellness | Human Wellness | Community Wellness 🙂
Pawsome Pet Christmas Party!
Our epic Pawsome Pet Christmas Party is held here at Pet Wellness Centre each December. We take over the whole complex with doggie market stalls, jumping castle, face painters, doggie swimming pools, sausage sizzle and more! We run tours of the Centre and you can even get your family photo with Santa – with the furry family members included! All proceeds from our party go to the Animal Welfare League. Keep an eye on our social media for dates.
Nearly a Vet Convention
We just love our Nearly a Vet Conventions! In partnership with children’s author and science teacher Rebecca Johnson, we invite primary school aged kids to come to the Centre and learn all about animal care and how to be a vet! Each “nearly a vet” receives a Nearly a Vet kit (containing real, working vet equipment like a stethoscope and a thermometer) and a Lab Coat and participates in a fun, science filled workshop with Rebecca before a behind the scenes tour of the Pet Wellness Centre in operation! Keep an eye on our social media for upcoming dates.
