Commenced 14 January 2013
SPRA has launched an appeal to help pets, wildlife and other animals affected by the bushfires raging in Australia and Tasmania. Priorities will be pets and animals in NSW, but all cases in need will be considered for assistance subject to funds available. Rescue groups and individuals in need will be considered. Priorities will be cases without access to other support.
To the animal victims of these terrible bushfires, and their rescuers and carers......
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Your courage and spirit inspire us.
We pledge our support to you.
We pledge to raise as much money as we can to help you.
Hang in there, we are with you.
18/1/13 Tiddles the cat with burnt feet is still with us and having treatment but his wounds are healing so well. He will be going home after his owners find a new home.
OUR GOAL $20K
Please help us blitz our target!
The more money we can raise, the more animals, their rescuers and carers, we can help.
Please give generously.

GROUP WE ARE HELPING
Southern Cross Wildlife Care
Glen has been working side by side with Dr Howard Ralph and his wife Glenda for 12 days straight both in the Moss Vale and Braidwood clinics.They have helped dozens of animals, mainly kangaroos and wombats down the south coast and possums and birds on the north side of Sydney
.On one of the days in Braidwood, they were told to evacuate, the people across the road did, but they stayed to keep helping the animals they were treating, Glen said it was pretty scary....
The costs are very high, for 10 mils, it's $400 for the antibiotic they use.... so they are past the $2,000 mark. Dr Ralph is in Coonabarrabran now treating more animals .... he never stops
We're getting your donations where they're needed as fast as possible
Please dig deep! We want the animals and their rescuers and carers who are working so valiantly to save them, to have the benefit of your donations as soon as possible. Please watch this space to see how your donations are being distributed to the animals.
20/2/12 We have transferred $525 to Southern Cross Wildlife Care
