RSPCA NSW Flood Relief Update

We are deeply saddened by the devastation caused by the New South Wales floods, yet another crisis in a series that have affected tens of thousands of people and animals across the state.

The work done by the police, the State Emergency Services (SES) and the Rural Fire Service (RFS) is nothing short of heroic.

As the flood waters recede, and we begin to gain access to flood affected communities, RSPCA NSW can do what we do best: help people help animals.

We have seen but a snapshot of the impact the floods have had on livestock, companion animals and wildlife. The full impact is not yet clear. RSPCA NSW is working to provide urgent relief and assistance at locations throughout the Mid North Coast.

Our Community Outreach teams are distributing animal products including wet and dry pet food, flea, tick and worm medication, pet crates and other animal products at evacuation centres.

Our inspectors are providing assistance wherever they can. They are stationed in regional areas ready for activation by the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) once flood zones are cleared for entry. Many areas are still too wet to access safely. Their focus is assisting livestock, doing fodder drops and conducting animal assessments.

We are grateful to each and every person who has reached out to offer their assistance and donate bedding, blankets and goods. We want to thank Petbarn for donating pet food and goods to our teams for distribution. This is a community effort, and it is incredibly heart-warming to see everyone come together in this time of need.

We will be updating this post with more details.
