Victorian Bushfire Appeal

We are aware of dozens of wildlife shelters and carers around the state that have been affected by the Victorian bushfires and extreme heat events.

Donations to our Victorian bushfire appeal will be distributed to wildlife shelters and carers to help rebuild enclosures and equipment that they have lost in the fires so that they can continue their lifesaving work, and support those that are struggling to cope with the enormous number of animals that will need care in the coming weeks and months.
