Because I believe the bond between a dog and owner is sacred, and once you have experienced this – itsa love like no other. When our dogs are injured or sick, its soul destroying. We feel helpless and responsible and just want them to get better
Why do I do what i do? Anything I can do to nurture this bond – by providing physiotherapy to the dogs and helping the owners to get their dogs back on track.

Rewarding businesses that make a difference
It’s back! The Ethical Enterprise Award is returning for it’s third year in 2015 to recognise and celebrate the achievements of Australia’s most inspirational enterprises – innovative and ethical practices that deliver positive social and economic impact.
The Ethical Enterprise Award is open to any Australian business or organization of any size that delivers innovative, ethical, positive social, environmental and economic impact in local, state, national or international sectors.
“The winner of this coveted award will be publically recognised for its achievements for positive impact and profit as well as win $10,000 in cash to contribute towards their vision for positive change. The winners will also receive business development and promotional opportunities.” said Susanna Bevilacqua, founder of Moral Fairground, award co-founder.
Last year’s winner, Seven Women, is a development organisation which socially and economically empowers marginalised women in Nepal through skills training and employment.
Stephanie Woollard, founder of Seven Women, was honored to receive the Ethical Enterprise Award in 2014.
“It was fantastic for the Seven Women team both here in Australia and Nepal to be recognised for the impacts we are making. Receiving the ethical enterprise award has given us a platform from which to expand our model of empowering women.”
“The Ethical Enterprise awards were designed to encourage and celebrate innovation and leadership in the sector, help catalyse its development and, ultimately, make the world a far better place,” said Phil Vernon Managing Director, Australian Ethical Investment.
