The horrific bushfires blazing across southern Tasmania not only caused widespread damage to residents, properties and bushland, but have also put the lives of thousands of animals at risk including pets, farm animals and wildlife.

In a bid to help primary producers affected by the devastating fires, the RSPCA has set up a community register to help coordinate offers of assistance.  The register will be connecting people in need with those who can help them. Temporary pet accommodation or horse or livestock agistment is being offered to those affected.  To offer or seek assistance residents should email rspca@rspcatas.org.au or phone (03) 6244 3033.

Residents can contact the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment on (03) 6233 6875 for assistance with livestock or wildlife impacted by fires.

The Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary is also offering help for any injured wildlife and can be contacted on (03) 6268 1184.

RSPCA has also launched the Tasmanian Bush Fire Appeal after being inundated with calls from members of the public wanting to help.

Members of the public wanting to assist animals affected by the bushfires are being encouraged to make a donation to the appeal by visiting www.rspca.org.au.
