You know its been hot when our native animals start leaving the country!!!!
Cute and cuddly Koala's are very vulnerable to fire in their tree's.
These photos show clearly that native animals are quite prepared to accept help
when the going gets tough.
On the late news recently they had a segment on about a vet down in Victoria who lost her surgery through the bushfires. The very next day she opened up at what had been the local fish shop and was taking in injured animals, pets and native. She is treating the animals for free and is not asking people to make appointments - she is just taking them as they walk in. "The Vet Practice" is the name of her business and she needs donations to allow her to continue her good work.
Please pass this information on to all you know in the hope that more people are aware of what this wonderful woman is doing and may be able to send a donation her way so she can continue helping these injured animals. The web site is below:

There are stories of heroism and acts of kindness coming out on a daily basis that make us feel very proud to be Australian's, sadly there are also a few incidences of the other side of the scale, these range from the scum who deliberately set the fires that cause so much heartache to so many, to the looters who are somehow able to plunder the very few possessions that some of the victims of the fires have, one can only wonder how they can live with them selves. Overall though it is the stories of kindness and valor that shine through in times of trouble.
