January 02, 2020 - Central Animal Records' Response to Bushfire Disaster

We, here at Central Animal Records, are deeply saddened by the extent and severity of the bushfire crisis that has affected our country over the past weeks. We extend our sincere sympathies to the families who have lost loved ones and our thoughts are also with those who have lost property, pets or livestock. The other and unfortunately ongoing tragedy is the loss of so many wildlife and such a massive area of vital habitat. There are many amazing people and organisations committed to the emergency care and treatment of burnt and injured wildlife and, if it were possible, we would like to help all of them. We have chosen to support our great friends at Zoos Victoria who have set up a dedicated Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund to assist the veterinary care of the injured wildlife AS WELL AS steps to address the ongoing issue of the loss of their habitat.

Microchips Australia and Central Animal Records will donate $0.50c to the Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund for every Trovan microchip and CAR subscription sold during the entire month of January!
