Meet Team Tamaruke……

Charlotte McGrath

Charlotte McGrath

Charlotte McGrath, the founder of Tamaruke, has developed the breed and put business systems and structures into place to ensure Tamaruke is a business that can virtually run itself, and a business whose viability and success is not dependent on any one person.

However, even though Char and Mark are selling Tamaruke to move on with the next stage of their lives, Char is just as passionate about this breed as she was when she started it 25 years ago and she will be available for six months after the sale of the business to advise and help the new owner, if required.

Monique - General Manager

Monique - General Manager

Monique is Tamaruke’s General Manager. She lives locally and adores Tamarukes.

Monique hopes to continue in her existing role after the sale, enabling the new owner to transition smoothly into the business or even run it remotely.

As a great organiser she ensures the Tamaruke operation runs like clockwork on a day to day basis.

She works alongside Charlotte McGrath to coordinate all aspects of the Tamaruke Guardian Program – ensuring staff, the dogs and their owners are all in the right place at the right time.

If you decided to run Tamaruke from off-site, Monique would be able to seamlessly step into Charlotte’s administrative role.

Chris McClelland - Experienced Vet Surgeon

Chris McClelland - Experienced Vet Surgeon

Tamaruke is the only breeder in the world to have an on site veterinary hospital and a private vet.

Dr. Chris McClelland administers all the vaccinations, undertakes microchipping, de-sexes the dogs, is available to assist Guardian dogs with birthing, as well as for other surgical procedures that may be required from time to time. Dr Chris is a licensed New South Wales veterinarian with his own clinic in Hamilton but he is also on call for Tamaruke 24/7.

The licence for the on-site veterinary hospital is owned by Chris and he is happy to stay on working for the new owner of Tamaruke.

If you would prefer to run the surgery yourself, put in another vet to run the surgery for you, or lease the premises as a satellite surgery to a local vet, Chris can also transfer the existing licence to a different vet.
