Carnival Sponsors & Supporters

Carnival at the Vets just wouldn’t be possible without the very generous support of our sponsors, and the help of our supporters and Friends of Carnival.

The sponsors and supporters whose generosity makes Carnival at the Vets possible.

Putting on an event like Carnival at the Vets is a mammoth exercise for a small rural veterinary hospital like Alpine Animal Doctors. It just wouldn’t be possible without the very generous support of our sponsors, and the help of our supporters and Friends of Carnival.

Whether they’re a veterinary trade sponsor, a local business donating goods or service or a volunteer giving up their time for free, so many people help us out in so many ways. Together, it’s they who help make Dr. Bek’s Big Day Out for Pets a succes, and a really fun time for everyone involved.

Our trade sponsors provide generous assistance with funding for games and events as well as donated product and with the contents of our famous Carnival Gift Bags. Their representatives also give up their own weekends to come and help out and join in the fun.

Local business people help out with donations of product and food, and generously allow us to put up our Carnival posters in their business premises.

And many, many individuals freely volunteer their time in so many ways, to help out with the preparations and on the day.

Some of our biggest supporters include:

Edge 102.1 FM and 1566AM 3NE. The two most listened to radio stations in the North East have generously provided air time and support to help us get the Carnival message out to the widest possible audience. Out thanks to the community-minded folk at both stations!

Advance Pet Nutrition. Manufacturers of high quality Premium Pet Foods, Advance have been our biggest supporter of Carnival. Based here in Victoria, Advance were our very first Carnival sponsor and have been exceptionally generous with their continued support.

Bayer Animal Health. One of the largest manufacturers of animal treatments, Bayer are the makers of the excellent Bayer Family of products, which includes Advantage, Advantix and Advocate flea and tick protection. Bayer have consistently and enthusiastically supported Carnival at the Vets since we first had the idea.

Clifford Hallam Healthcare (CH2..) are the veterinary industry’s leading provider of veterinary products. You won’t know the name but CH2.. are the people Dr. Bek turns to for all of those essential things we need to keep your pets healthy. And when we turned to them for support for Carnival, their response was generous and swift.

Royal Canin is another premium pet food manufacturer providing generous support for Carnival.

Rhys Gloury also gives up his free time to put on his entertaining Snakes Alive Show.

There are many more who help out in small ways and in large, particularly the Clapperton family who have volunteered to man our Sausage Sizzle this year.

Our heartfelt thanks go to all of them — without them Carnival at the Vets would never have got off the ground.
