Animal Welfare League NSW is proud and honoured to annouce our newest ambassador, Dr Katrina Warren.

Dr Katrina Warren is a veterinarian who first appeared on our television screens in 1994 as a presenter on the children’s show, Totally Wild. She then went on to co-host the hit tv show, Harry’s Practice and became a household name for promoting responsible pet ownership and animal welfare.

She has appeared across all media platforms- television, radio, print and internet, has written three books, regularly mc’s events and does dog training talks and demonstrations. Dr Katrina is currently resident veterinarian on the Today Show as well as hosting Talk To The Animals for Ch 9 and Housecat Housecall for Animal Planet, USA

Katrina loves all animals but has a huge passion for Border Collies- particularly chocolate ones. Her beloved Border Collie, Toby won hearts across the country for his mischievous personality and amazing repertoire of tricks-which resulted in a top selling book, Wonderdog.

Our other very supportive ambassadors include:

Born and raised in Sydney, Dr Harry Cooper graduated with second class honours from Sydney University in 1965. He practised for several years in NSW and the UK, before settling in Tasmania with his wife and daughter. Dr Harry began his media career on breakfast TV as the vet expert on a local Sydney chat show. He also has a spot on Don Burke's radio program, and in 1987 joined Don Burke on Burke's Backyard.

In 1993, he became the host of Talk to the Animals, which ran for four years. Then in 1997, Dr Harry returned to his veterinary rooms to film the first series of Harry's Practice which has made him a household name.

Known for his trademark caps, Dr Harry has a collection of more than 60 - and never leaves home without one!

Known for his media work in such programs as A Country Practice, Burke's Backyard and on 2GB radio, Dr Rob Zammit’s passions are veterinary science with a special interest in reproduction work and the welfare of animals. He lives on site at his practice with his family, 12 dogs, 5 cats, 2 horses and various other animals.

Dr Joanne Righetti loves all animals but confesses that if she were one, she'd definitely be a cat living in her own house, living the pampered life. A renowned animal behaviourist who features on TV, radio and print. Joanne says that owners and pets can often look uncannily alike because people choose an animal to match their personality or try to match pets with how they would like to be seen themselves!
