WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
For many of us the devastation is overwhelming and while we all want to help in some way, it’s often hard to know where to start.
There are a number of evacuation shelters that are housing families, pets and wildlife that have been displaced by the fires.
HOW TO MAKE A DONATION
Petbarn stores around Australia are now collecting donations through the Petbarn Foundation and will distribute to animal welfare carers in need.
If you would like to make a contribution, you can make a $3, $5 or $10 donation in any Petbarn store knowing that 100% OF DONATIONS WILL GO TO PETS AND WILDLIFE IN NEED.
To start the Tasmania Bushfire Appeal, the Petbarn Foundation has donated $20,000 and will continue to supply pet food to those shelters that urgently require assistance.
For those who would like to make a financial donation or donation of food online, we are currently working through the technical logistics to provide you with this option and hope to have this available within the next few days.
If you would like to help families in need, you can also make a donation to the Red Cross Tasmanian Bushfires 2013 by following following this link https://www.redcross.org.au/tasmanian-bushfires-appeal-2013.aspx
