Why do local animal charities need help?

Local charities are preparing for an influx of animals as this unprecedented situation results in widespread loss of jobs and people surrendering their pets, overflowing their facilities.

Following the advice from the State Government regarding COVID-19 and the closure of non-essential services and activities to protect the community, all events and external fundraising opportunities have had to be cancelled, meaning the much-needed donations that animal charities rely on are no longer being received.
