Bushfires and wildlife
It is important for people who live in areas where fires have been to think about leaving out bowls of water out for animals escaping the fires and keeping cats and dogs inside and under control wherever
You can also keep a cardboard box and towel in the boot of your car in case you find an injured animal.
If you do rescue an animal that has been burnt, wrap it loosely, place it in a cardboard box, keep it in a dark, quiet
and warm place and do not try and feed the animal,
call WIRES 1300 094 737 as soon as possible for advice and assistance.
