AniPal with Dr. Steph Stubbe
On today’s episode of It’s A Dogs Life With Angela Ardolino, we’re joined by Dr. Steph Stubbe to talk about AniPal. Dr. Steph Stubbe is an RSPCA veterinarian and founder of AniPal, a social enterprise dedicated to helping the veterinary and animal communities transition to more sustainable practices, lowering their environmental footprint. Growing in rural Australia, Steph moved to Melbourne to study Science and The Doctor of Veterinary Medicine whilst working at an AgTech Accelerator. This fuelled her curiosity and led her to develop the Business Association of Veterinary Students (BAVS) at Melbourne University, a group dedicated to fostering veterinary business understanding. Whilst working as a graduate at RSPCA, she created Anipal, which cleans the ocean and planet one dog and doctor at a time. Steph has spoken at numerous veterinary conferences and the United Nations on this topic and is dedicated to helping the veterinary and agricultural industries become more sustainable.
