Your community is our community
Turramurra Vet Hospital is proud to sponsor both local community activities and Australian charities, many of which support animal welfare and veterinary education in developing nations.
Pymble Public School, Turramurra Public School, Sacred Heart School, and Pymble Turramurra (Handley Ave) Kindergarten have benefited from Kindifarm visits and Wahroonga Public School (the Bush School) from a visit by the Reptile Man, all sponsored by Turramurra Veterinary Hospital. These visits allow children to interact safely with a variety of young animals.
We have donated pet hamper prizes to the above schools plus Wahroonga Public School, Brigidine, St Edmunds School for the Blind, Warrawee Public School, Knox Grammar School, St John’s Church at Wahroonga, Northern Suburbs Dog Training Club and St Ives Rugby Club.
Turramurra Vet Hospital has sponsored over 50 local community and school events and conducted pet safety talks at local schools.
Turramurra Vet Hospital is proud to support conservation, humanitarian and animal welfare organisations including Australian Wildlife Conservancy, Cure Cancer Foundation, Vets Beyond Borders, Fred Hollows Foundation, Guide Dogs of Australia, DART’s (Dete Animal Rescue Trust) Hwange Leopard Project and the SAVE Foundation. James organised the Stand Up for SAVE Comedy Night in 2007 which raised over $20,000 for the conservation of the endangered Black Rhino. The 2010 Jacaranda Party with local Australian, South African and Zimbabwean communities raised funds for Fred Hollows Foundation sufficient to cure blindness in 100 people.
Jim has raised over $5,000 in 2 years for Can Too (Cure Cancer Australia) most recently completing the Sydney Half Marathon to raise funds for Cure Cancer in just over 2 hours.
