The hot weather last week and now the fires have impacted on a range of animals. DEPI has issued pet and livestock health and safety messages – both for the hot weather and for the fire emergencies , see animals in emergency guidelines.

The site also includes some great tips on what to consider in your fire plan if you have pets.  Remember to keep those water bowls filled with clean water for the wildlife remaining behind.
