Our grief and heartbreak is boundless, as the latest estimate of animals deceased by Australia’s wildfires has reached more than 1 billion.
One billion animals killed — whether by the flames, smoke inhalation, or the destruction of their food sources and shelter, which is now barren, burned landscape. It’s inconceivable.
There are ways to help.
We recommend offering support to the New South Wales chapter of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The RSPCA NSW is a not-for-profit organization in Australia and is one of the many organizations working to help animals endangered by the fires, including pets and livestock.
Specifically, this group's heroic staff and volunteers are on the ground helping members of the public keep their personal pets and livestock safe from the fires by gathering the animals, transporting them to safety, and securing shelter in the interim.
Our hearts are with the people, pets, and wildlife in Australia. We know yours are, too. Any amount helps.
