The Dirty Dog Tail Run is not a race, but a day of fun and play where you can help out by supporting our charitable partner Sweet Pea Animal Rescue.
Sweet Pea Animal Rescue With a mission to improve the quality of life for animals of all shapes and sizes in all parts of the world, Rob and Sam plan to open a rescue centre and sanctuary for both wildlife and companion animals to provide a safe haven for sick, injured and homeless animals in the area. Through this centre they hope to care for, re-home and release back to the wild as many animals as possible.
Their future plans also include an education centre, where their knowledge and skills can be shared with others to further assist in the welfare of animals. The education centre could host school children, adult education, and overseas guests involved in animal care in other parts of the world.
Both Rob and Sam are genuinely committed to caring for animals whether they have an owner or not. They have been actively involved in the care and welfare of local wildlife, which is done on a voluntary basis and are both carers for the local branch of Animal Welfare League, caring for and assisting in the re-homing of dozens of loveable cats and dogs.
The welfare work that they do doesn’t stop there – both Rob and Sam have been involved in a number of volunteer expeditions to other parts of the world. These missions often involve the de-sexing and treatment of companion animals, as well as the treatment and care of exotic wildlife such as Sun Bears, Slow Loris, Macaques, Moon Bears, and European Brown Bears.
Their journeys have included destinations such as Cambodia, Borneo, Java, Bali, China, Romania and most recently the Pilbara, in Western Australia. Working with organisations such as Free the Bears, International Animal Rescue, Animals Asia, and AMRRIC (Animal Management in Remote and rural Indigenous Communities).
