Australian Bushfires – How You Can Help

Pet Poison Helpline® is proud to serve and support the veterinarians and animals in Australia. Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the wildfires. Here are a few ways you can help.

Australian Red Cross

Port Macquarie Koala Hospital

“The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, and National Parks and Wildlife Service crew leaders, have spent weeks searching for koalas following the devastating bush fires in the Port Macquarie area.  To date, 31 koalas have been brought to the hospital from several fire grounds.”

RSPCA New South Wales

“With fires ravaging the state, animals are at their most vulnerable. Please donate to our bushfire appeal to help protect them.”

Australian Koala Foundation

Koalas in Care Inc.

World Wildlife Fund

“It’s estimated that as many as 8,400 koalas have perished in fires on the mid-north coast of NSW and South Australia’s Kangaroo Island has lost over 50% of their koala population This is a devastating blow for an iconic species already in decline, and these bushfires have the potential to hasten koalas’ slide towards extinction in eastern Australia.”


“WIRES is a wildlife charity that relies on community support to operate our rescue and care services for wildlife 365 days a year and we are extremely grateful for your support at this difficult time.”
