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.
Please register details using this link or give our emergency response line a call on 03 8400 7300. Please note that we can receive around 300 calls a day and may currently be very busy. Please also note that our Emergency Response phone lines are currently open from 6.35am to 8.30pm, 7 days a week.
If you are able to log your details online, we will attend to you as soon as possible. If you need some advice, have a look at our "How to help" page.
