We are proud to have the support of the wonderful team at Vet Cross Bundaberg, Gin Gin and Bargara

They perform all the necessary vet work needed to get these dogs back to health and ready to continue on their search for new homes. They have generously built an adoption area in the pet super store for Red Collar.

We thank Andrew, Tim and the rest of the team and look forward to a long and happy relationship.

The Wessel Family’s involvement in the petroleum industry commenced in 1948 when Henry Wessel took over Atlantic Oil Agency, and commenced his own business at Whittred Street, East Bundaberg, still the present site of Wessel Petroleum today.

In 1959 the business undertook its first major change when Atlantic Oil Company changed its trading name to Esso Oil Australia. Paul Wessel joined Henry in 1969 and his brother Chris Wessel joined them both in the business in 1985. 1988 saw the business grow with the addition of the Esso distributorship in Maryborough & Hervey Bay and the company also commenced a retail sector with taking on 4 service stations. Henry retired in 1990 with Paul and Chris taking over management

Wessel Petroleum has a wide network of company operated and commission agent sites, servicing regions across Queensland

Today, the diversification of Wessel Petroleum has seen Managing Director Paul Wessel heading Company, his wife Debra manages the Retail Network; and their son Kurt just recently taking over the role as Retail Manager. Fellow Director Chris Wessel manages the Eastside site and Lubes Distribution, his wife Tina being dedicated to the Head Office Team; and their son Jarrod working in the Bundaberg sites while completing his senior education.

Nerdyness Pty Ltd

Nerdyness has helped us with our online presence by rescuing our website many years ago by
bringing it back online and have been providing maintenance and support to the site for many years
Rose and her team have also helped us enhance opportunities to communicate what we do and how
others can be involved and support these lovely dogs that are looking for their forever homes by
including our PayPal donation buttons on our site as well as the bank details and made our adoption
and foster forms easily for clients to access.
And like many others that have come before, once you get to see these lovely dogs and how much
they deserve a second chance at a forever home, Rose and her husband Tony Fostered a wonderful
dog named Tess and within 3 days become a typical “Foster Fail”, adopting Tess permanently. Tess
has been a much-loved part of their family now for over 6 years.
