Western Australia has been dealing with a lot of wildfires lately, and these fires have not only taken their toll on surrounding communities, but have also affected many animals who call this area home. Fortunately, there is a small veterinary clinic in the area that has been treating these animals.
One vet, who works at the clinic, shares her stories and pictures of animals she has been nursing back to health.
See her story below and how you can help this small clinic continue to provide help to these poor animals

This little ‘roo suffered burns to his tail, arms, and legs after getting stuck in an out-of-control bushfire in Western Australia.
Waroona Veterinary Clinic is a small vet in Waroona, Western Australia, that has been taking in injured animals from the fires.
Currently they have birds, possums, cats, and kangaroos all bundled up and medicated, hoping for a quick a healthy recovery.
Nurse Hayley Donovan works at Waroona Veterinary and she mentioned that the kangaroo joey is currently staying at one of the other nurse’s homes, along with two girl joeys and a possum.
“The response from people willing to donate money and goods has been insane! It’s so lovely that there are so many kind hearted people out there willing to help.”
“All of the pet products that have been donated have gone to the victims of the bush fire with pets and the medical supplies and monetary donations have gone to the treatment of the burnt animals.”
Waroona Veterinary Clinic is still taking donations that will all be put towards animal treatment.
