We're a fun team passionate to do good things.
COURTNEY MEYER | CO-FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
A lover of animals and seeker for truth, which can often be found in the moments of observing a cat.
I co-founded Super Furry Festival with Jess in 2014 after a late night coming home and seeing stray cats in the alley, scared and helpless. It made me take action immediately, reaching out via Facebook to others to get involved. That's how I met Jess. What started off as a late night desire to make a difference, 3 years later has turned into an annual festival sharing love, fun and laughs.
With 10 years experience in creative entrepreneurship after having owned and developed my own fashion label and retail business, it was time to let that go and use those years of learnings for something that would bring people together over their love of animals.
JESS ZELTNER|CO-FOUNDER & EVENT DIRECTOR
A self confessed crazy cat lady who loves her rescued furry babies. Boo and Squeak are my two male tuxedo cats, always smartly dressed and cute AF.
As I have two rescues I’ve always wanted to share with others the love and joy they bring, so I wanted to raise awareness & to educate the public of rescue pets through creative projects. That is when I met Courtney.
With a background in Event Management and Courtney’s creative flair we realised we wanted to create a fun, joyful and positive event that was different to the usual “rattle the money tins and beg for donations,” so we turned this concept on it’s head and birthed a creative, interactive, fresh and lively festival known as SUPER FURRY FESTIVAL.
GENEVIEVE REYNOLDS | AMBASSADOR MANAGER
Lover of creatures both great and small; especially dogs and marine life. I was volunteering with a Sea Turtle conservation project in Mexico a few years ago and got to witness Green Turtles nesting. It was such a life changing experience! I joined the Super Furry team in support against animal cruelty and in hope we can find loving families for animals in need of homes and care.
KATHRINA PHAN | Event Co-Ordinator
Growing up, I always had pets – dogs, fish, frogs, Guinea pigs, birds, chickens; the whole lot! They became my friends as a child and I think it was then that I grew to love animals so much and learn they were not that much different from us. As a child, I wanted to stand up for them because “they couldn’t speak.” I have always wanted to be a part of something that puts animals and their best interests at the core of what they do and I think Super Furry Festival does just that, and in a fun way too. I became interested in Super Furry Festival because of its support to shelters and its ability to bring together like-minded individuals.
JESSICA WONG | Marketing Manager
I was always passionate about animal welfare- adopting and rehoming in particular. From this interest, I’ve always told myself that one day I will do something that will help that cause. Being involved with Super Furry has been an amazing journey, it is great to have the opportunity to work with such an empowering group of women and animal lovers. I am a proud owner of a Maltese Terrier who means the world to me and has shown me the best of how a dog can change your life. Being a regular volunteer at a Dog Shelter, I have seen many deserving animals that are just waiting to find their forever home. I want to be able to bridge that gap for the dogs and Super Furry is a great channel to do that.

JESSICA LIU | PR Manager
I have always loved animals (especially dogs) because of the heart-warming connections an animal can form with us without a single word spoken. As a university student, I was searching for work experience hoping to find a project in which I would be passionate about, and to find myself stumbling upon a chance to be involved with a team of animal lovers was a no-brainer. By joining the Super Furry team, it was really an eye-opener to see how much work is still needed for pets who have so much love to give and are still urgently looking for affectionate homes and how Super Furry Festival can create a voice for the neglected.
To be able to make a difference for those that can’t for themselves has always been a goal of mine. When I started volunteering at a dog shelter my eyes were opened to how much love all these animals have to give and I couldn’t help but think that if I could adopt all of these doggies right now - I would. Joining Super Furry Festival was the perfect opportunity for me to put this passion into action. To be on this journey with Super Furry Festival has allowed me to work with like minded animal lovers who inspire me to bring attention to rehoming animals and showing animals the love they need.
