Victorian Bush Fire Appeals & Assistance for Dogs and other Pet

The Pet Directory extends its sympathy to the victims of the bushfires. 
This is a tragic time for the nation and many of us would like to assist with donations of money or goods. Here is a list of organisations and funds that have been set up to help people with animals such as dogs, cats and other pets as well as wildllife that have been left homeless by the fires.

RSPCA Victoria
RSPCA Shelters and Inspectors have been working around the clock to provide emergency assistance to animals effected by the bushfires.

RSPCA action so far:

  • Our Inspectors are working with various government departments to provide emergency care to wildlife, companion animals and livestock.
  • We are providing temporary accommodation to animals at our Shelters across Victoria. If your pet needs emergency accommodation - please phone 03 9224 2222.
  • We are delivering emergency pet food to relief centres across Victoria including food donated by Hill's Pet Nutrition.  If you wish to donate items such as pet food, bedding, leads and bowls you can deliver these to your local RSPCA.
  • The RSPCA will be working to reunite lost pets with their families.  Stay tuned as we develop online resources to register your lost pet from the bushfire's.

Please note: If you are from the Bendigo area, our RSPCA Bendigo adoption centre has been closed.  This will increase our capacity to provide emergency assistance to animals affected by the bushfires.

To support our emergency relief effort in other ways, please complete our assistance form detailing the support you can offer.  If we can accept your generous offer, we will contact you soon.

To directly support our staff and volunteers at the front-line caring for animals affected by the bush fires, please donate here.
