Welcome to Perfect Pets - We're Animal Lovers Too

 

The driving force behind Perfect Pets is Maria Arnold - a wildlife conservationist and animal lover.  Maria's work as a primate conservationist in Uganda and Congo taught her that despite the effective efforts of dedicated groups and organisations, the work of saving threatened species and habitats is all too often hindered by unreliable and inadequate funding.  Maria decided to return to Australia to dedicate her professional skills and abilities to raising funding for animal welfare and conservation projects. Her efforts so far have helped raise funds for chimpanzee conservation projects in Africa, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, and the Australian Bush Heritage Fund.

 

Perfect Pets is Maria's latest effort to help support carefully selected groups and organisations with revenue generated by the sites memberships and advertising.  It is also hoped that Perfect Pets will help raise awareness about welfare issues relating to pets and other domesticated animals.

 

Perfect Pets is part of the Fully Stoked Company which was established in 2004. Fully Stoked has a diversified business model with revenues coming from online business ventures as well as web development and marketing.

 

Maria and her team have enjoyed the support of Hugh Jackman, Jane Goodall and other respected public figures who recognise their passion and commitment to animals.    Click on the image below for a Sydney Morning Herald article.

 

While courting a celebrity for a cause is often a slow, laborious task, their endorsement will stem from genuine interest more often than you’d think.

With literally dozens of options, celebrities usually select causes they connect with personally and limit their commitment to one or two causes to really make an impact.

How the organisation uses this support will usually depend on the celebrity’s personal commitment – but it doesn’t always happen in front of the camera.

Small ethical clothing label, Fully Stoked, which gives 30 per cent of its profits to environment and animal protection programs, enjoys Hugh Jackman’s support. It’s a relationship that has grown since Jackman and his business partner, John Palermo, first discovered the organisation’s work in 2005.

“They have been supportive of Fully Stoked since the very beginning. Back when we started there weren’t a whole lot of 'green' companies out there so it wasn't like it was a trendy thing to be involved with,â€Â says founder Maria Arnold.

“I think they appreciate the all-round ethical stance of the company – that we're sweat-shop free [and donate] to environmental programs,â€Â she says.

Arnold says that the time and effort Jackman and Palermo put in is a testament to their genuine concern for social and environmental issues, but while, “A photo of Hugh Jackman on our website is fantastic, there's also immeasurable behind-the-scenes interest and support that we couldn't do without.â€Â

Our mission is very straightforward:  We aim to be the best, and most ethical place to find everything to do with pets.  By connecting pet lovers with the highest standard of breeders*, pet related businesses, services and groups we hope to provide a platform where some of the processes involved in adopting, buying, breeding and caring for pets is safe, and where animal welfare is the highest priority. 

 

See our information about finding a reputable breeder.  We aim to provide a platform that only represents small scale, ethical and registered breeders that breed for the love of the breed, not for profit or the commecial pet market.

Perfect Pets Checklist 

 

 

 

How will we achieve that?

We have put a great deal of time, research and energy into answering the following key questions:

 

- Where do similar sites fail to protect users and pets?

- How can we do better?

- What makes a community based site aimed at connecting like minded people work?

- How can we ensure that members are authentic, pet loving people with the pet's best interests at heart?

 

We are confident that our systems and processes will allow Perfect Pets to satisfy these criteria and we will become the number one place for all things pets.  If you have comments, suggestions or ideas on how we can improve any aspect of the Perfect Pets website please contact us.   We are open to ideas and plan to be improving all the time!
