3AW interview – Vegas and Dennis Walters

Afternoon radio has one of the truly great voices in Victoria in more ways than one. Dennis Walters, the host of the very popular and long running 3AW 12- 3 pm show was awarded his Order of Australia Medal in 2015 for services as a singer, entertainer and broadcaster.

On the Wednesday afternoon shows Dennis is joined by the dog behavioural expert Laura V. Laura is a leader in her field which includes Animal Science, education, psychology and archaeology.

Laura is also employed by the Melbourne Zoo, to inspire future generations to take care of our earth and protect its wildlife. Laura V is also a Best Selling Author of ‘Things Your Dog Wants You To Know’. 

When PMC were approached to do an interview with both Dennis and Laura V on April 10th 2019 the team were understandably wrapped. Vegas (Marketing Director), spoke to Dennis and Laura about the work that Pet Medical Crisis has been doing and gave a brief history of the now 10 year old not-for-profit charity. Vegas spoke about how the not-for-profit is growing rapidly and interviewing for Partners and Major Sponsors in order for the company to expand and spread throughout the entire country.

Vegas outlined the importance that pets play in the role of mental wellbeing for so many in the community, especially the most vulnerable. Some of the wonderful vets that look after discounting our cases were spoken about along with our new ‘fancy’ website.

Donations are used directly to pay for the bills and for many families, donating to this charity means the difference to their pet living or not.

Warren and Jezza have been inseparable since they got together 8 years ago.  Warren is on a disability support pension and has experienced homelessness and desperation but Jezza has been his constant support.

Last year Pets of the Homeless assisted Warren to fund Jezza’s left anterior cruciate ligament repair for which he was enormously grateful.

Look at those eyes, Jezza you beauty!

Sadly Jezza’s right ACL ruptured a month ago. Warren was still paying off a previous $800 vet bill at Lort Smith with $30 each and every fortnight.  He simply wasn’t able to afford the cost of this $2,800 TWLO surgery.

Pet Medical Crisis have been pleased to donate our maximum of $1,000 to enable Jezza to go to surgery at Lort Smith. Warren now has a $2,600 bill to pay off at $30/fortnight over the next 3.3+ years. 

His love for Jezza is absolute and he’s never missed a payment to Lort Smith who have been so good to this devoted pair.

Rest and heal sweetheart… Love from all your friends at PMC xxxxooooxxxx

Our 504th case is 6mo Kelpie Tank D’Cruza. PMC assisted with surgery for Tank’s brother Mate 4 weeks ago (same bilateral femoral head osteotomy surgery) and while we are a 1-off crisis fund the case was approved for extenuating circumstances.

His Mum Tania writes:

“Tank is my dog. He is Mate’s sibling. Both have presented with the same genetic disorder within a short space of time unexpectedly. I adopted these 2 from a farmer who was going to drown them as they were not able to be used as working dogs. I want to give them both the best life possible as I understand rejection and abandonment and they deserve love. Tank is my pillow buddy and the biggest smooch out and gives me continous love. Our local vet wanted to put him to sleep however I can not do this to a 6 month old with lots of life and love ahead of him. Please help my baby. I have scrapped together $3000 on a pension whilst still paying Mates rehab following the same bill for him.”

Tank hear’s everything, especially “dinner time”

Mate and Tank were rescued by Tania – both destined to be drowned by a farmer who didn’t want them. Tania adopted them both and as they reached 5 months their hip malformations were identified.
