Hello Everyone!

Thank you for visiting our page, and thank you for your support for our chosen causes.

We are a group of vets and nurses who work at Peninsula Vetcare clinics on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.

This year we decided to improve our fitness, and at the same time help to support some hard working, un-sung animal charities who every day help care for animals and wildlife with passion and commitment.

20 of our staff have signed up to run 42, 21 or 10kms at the Melbourne Marathon, please make our hard work worthwhile!

We chose either charities based on the Mornington Peninsula or who have links with it.

Please feel free to look at each of our causes and use the links to their websites if you would like to know more.

Please help us support these great charities, and remember your money goes direct to the charity - donations big or small, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

In no particular order our causes are:


Their president is local Mornington lady Lynda Smith and she and her team are tireless in rescuing dogs from pounds, often injured and sick, nursing them to health and finding new homes for them


A charity run by local lady Belinda Goyarts. Pugs SOS keep pugs out of puppy farm, helping them with medical problems and finding loving homes for them


Jennifer Hunt set up this charity which has been created to help pensioners and disadvantaged pet owners who cannot afford surgery to keep their family pet alive.


W.H.O.M.P. are a network of volunteers who give up their time, to collect from the wild or local vets injured wildlife and nurse them back to health to allow them to be set free again. They require basic feed, money for fuel, and new aviaries - these volunteers are helped by the occasional grant, but pay for most things from their own pockets.


Our only international cause is a great one, founded by Mornington lad Damien Mander.

The IAPF help protect wildlife all over the world from poachers, and wildlife crime. Target Species such as elephant and rhino are being hunted to extinction. These animals are the most difficult to protect, as poachers go to the most extreme lengths to kill them. If we can safeguard these animals, then entire ecosystems are protected.

So, as you see 5 very different, but equally deserving charities - please help as best you can.
