What happens to a sick or injured animal without an owner who can pay for its veterinary care?
Animals in Need makes sure that any animal, bird or reptile needing veterinary care will be well looked after. It also helps homeless animals to find loving new owners, relying on generous support from people like you to give the best possible care to vulnerable patients.
It can be confronting for a person experiencing homelessness or disadvantage to have a pet needing veterinary care. For many marginalised people, their pet may be their closest companion.
With the support of people like you, we're able to run a monthly pop-up clinic, HopeStreet, which offers free vet care to animals in need.
For koalas living in the Eastern states, extreme temperatures are drying out the eucalyptus leaves that once provided them with all the water they required. Dr Valentina Mella has discovered that koalas will supplement their water needs at drinking stations during extreme weather.
With your help, we can set up more koala drinking stations in threatened koala communities.
Extinction once seemed inevitable for the Tasmanian devil, but on an expedition to the state's remote southwest, researchers made a discovery that could help protect the species.
With your support, we can send more researchers into the region and be one step closer to saving this incredible creature.
