Bushfire Assistance and How You Can Help

We are deeply saddened by the devastating bushfires and our thoughts are with those people, animals and businesses who have been affected by these fires.

Alongside the South Australian community, the AWL team are doing what we can to support those who have lost so much in the bushfires.

As part of AWL's activation through Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA), we are working alongside RSPCA SA to assist people and their pets throughout this difficult time.  If you have been affected and need support, please call our team on 8348 1300.

Emergency Pet Boarding

AWL is offering emergency pet boarding for owners worried for the safety of their pets, needing to evacuate their homes, or for people who have sadly lost their homes to the bushfires. 

Together RSPCA and AWL are offering emergency boarding for dogs and cats.

Emergency Pet Assistance

Sadly, many families, businesses and pet owners have lost everything to the bushfires. AWL is offering emergency assistance with pet food and pet supplies for those affected.

Cremation Support
