In response to the current bushfire emergency, the University is extending and increasing its current veterinary services for wildlife, livestock and companion animals affected by the bushfire as a matter of urgent priority.
A dedicated crowdfunding campaign has been established to enable the community to provide financial contributions to assist the University with this effort.
The University’s services include:
Professor Frazer Allan, Head of Sydney School of Veterinary Science said, “The Sydney School of Veterinary Science and the wider University has a wealth of knowledge and resources that it can and has used to help wildlife impacted by the bushfire crisis. We are working with lead agencies such as the RSPCA, NSW Department of Primary Industries and WIRES to ensure our work is coordinated with that of others.”
“We welcome the public’s support in helping us to use our expertise and services to do whatever we can to both assist the vets and other professionals treating animals as well as using our own clinics to treat affected animals.”
The University’s Vice-Chancellor has acknowledged the role the University has to play in making our expertise available to governments and communities in our efforts to rebuild and attempt to prevent serious recurrence of the bushfires.
Please give to the Bushfire Emergency Veterinary Appeal to support Australia’s animals which are in dire need.
