  • by Rufus and Coco

At Rufus & Coco, we believe that we can truly improve humanity one pet at a time and one way to show this is for us to celebrate the love that Australians have for their pets. Hence, the Australian Pawtrait Prize Competition was born and the search for Australia's Next Top Dog or Cat took centerstage.
