Brisbane Hub! Huge donation day today with several massive pickups! All part of the Royal Canin and #petbarnfoundation Companion Animal Rescue Support project.

Angie and the hub team are now totes set up and rocking. Over 450 pallets are now being spread across rescuers all over australia. Brisbane hub has a huge Day today with many volunteers and rescuers  turning up to get supply. 

As you can see from this picture with Paw print Canine Rescue we made it worth the journey!
GIPPSLAND FLOODS - LARGE ARC HUB AT GROUND ZERO.

We are continuing to monitor closely the situation in Gippsland Vic with massive floods and storms impacting all local rescuers. Right in the centre of the floods is ARC Sale, our largest hub and a Wildlife focused shared site we have prepared for WIRES and other rescuers.

You can sponsor our work here www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

The banks of the river just burst and this is before the major storm event tonight. With intermittent power and in freezing cold, wet conditions, Joey and the volunteer team have begun the process of support for local rescue. 

Thanks to the funding and support from #WIRES to support the emergency national prep plan we have infrastructure on the ground and going out

Additionally we are buying 
• Butane
• Generators
• Fuel
• Medical
• Heating and cooking
• Food
• Fences and containment
• Crates

Sale hub was stocked with emergency supplies late last year. Joey and the team are very well versed with managing emergencies and know the inevitable work to come. 

If you are a rescuer in the Gippsland Floods and need help click here and log a job. 

A massive thank you to WIRES and our sponsors, Friendly Jordies and the guilds for backing this work. Some of our closest rescuers, people we have worked with all year are in the area and under evac warning.

It wont be enough, and we know from experience what is about to hit for both the wildlife rescuers and the farm rescuers. But we are as ready as we can be to help.
Good evening, 

Just letting you all know.. be it wild life rescues, companion rescues, farm rescues, and snake rescues… Around Victoria, especially any of the Gippsland and East Gippsland areas, ARC Sale and Pakenham will be available for any assistance needed over this time during the up and coming deluge that is in front of us. ( Fingers crossed it’s not going to be too hectic for you all). However We are ready to go at Sale with pumps, evacuation equipment, first aid, food and team with transport. Pm or message anytime if you find you need support, just  let us know. You aren’t alone ♥️

Large food donations coming into shelters. Royal Caninand #PetbarnFoundation load hits Bundaberg thanks to #QFNational

The next in the huge animal rescue food donation load is being spread across QLD with a large load of about 2 Tonne (ish) landing in Bundaberg. This has gone over to the awesome Sharyne Banks at Red Collar Rescue who is helping to distribute to the local rescuers in the area.

We are very grateful for the help of Sharyn and all the team, Angie Kay and the helpers that got this load in and ready for distribution.
If you are a rescue group needing food please log a job here www.arcsupport.org.au/companion

If you would like to sponsor our work visit www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

This delivery is part of an enormous 400+ pallet donation being given to rescuers around Australia by #PetbarnFoundation and Royal Canin . . QLD is first and the other states are soon following.
The first loads of the massive 404 Pallet donation from Royal Canin and #PetbarnFoundation has arrived in our new QLD hubs. This will mean hundreds of dogs fed in QLD.

This is the largest donation of food ever and is all thanks to Royal Canin, Petbarn and QF National.  

The first load is now being unloaded by Angie & Kaye from the new Brisbane ARC hub and 57 jobs have been loaded by rescuers across the state. Loads are also on the way to Far North QLD and directly to pounds and shelters that have logged requests.

This is not just any food, this is Royal Canin "Relaxed Care" which is designed to help dogs who are in rescue and transition status. EG. Pounds and shelters. This is high end, premium in date product in a massive $1.4m food donation. This is 100% helping and respecting rescue.

If your rescue org needs food, log a request here www.arcsupport.org.au/companion and we will add you to the list. If you are prepared to drive to a hub, even better.

All 23 national ARC Hubs including Perth, Tasmania, Vic and Adelaide are involved in this massive logistical support project. Thank you to all the volunteers that support our work and sponsors that help us pay the bills

If you would like to sponsor our work click here www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

If you are a vendor or manufacturer and have products to donate to help animals click here and let us know https://arcsupport.org.au/donateproduct/

ARC is a massive, volunteer run program that helps rescuers and animals all over Australia. Through the amazing support of the MKC, Petbarn, WIRES and Royal Canin we work non stop to help rescuers get better support and outcomes. This is important, necessary and can only happen because of the great partners and rescuers that do this work.

Lets get this done
The scale of the number of requests for food support from Royal Canin and #petbarnfoundation in the coming companion donation. Over 500 rescuer jobs logged now to share with. 

This is Massive .
Final distributions are now being locked in for Royal Canin and #PetbarnFoundation's incredible pound/shelter food donation. 

This is a massive logistical process. There are 404 pallets of food, 108 tonne, thousands of bags, hundreds of rescue sites and the whole of Australia is involved.  A project management team and the support of QF National and Storage King Australia has been paramount

If you havent logged a request in the system yet hit the link www.arcsupport.org.au/companion 

Who benefits? Rescuers. $1.4m in food means that rescuers can use funding to help animals in other ways. More vet care, more support, more rescues. 

Having food to feed your animals is #1 concern when you rescue an animal. 

If you are a vendor looking to move product rather than bin it, we can take whatever you throw at us.  There is over 1000 shelters in the network, 23 drop sites and thousands of people wanting to help. Next stop, food in faces.
Raking, mopping, garden chores, homework... how much more can a 🐨Koala bear🐻?? 

Ken E Koala here, asking the big question:
Did you get pocket 💰 money for doing your chores and your homework when you were a little joey? 🐨

If only I had $5 for every eucalyptus 🌱 leaf I’ve raked up, $5 for every barrow of fresh leaf that I’ve wheeled to my koala friends in their rehabilitation enclosures...

Do you know what I’d do with it? 💡 
I’d become an:

⭐️ARC Monthly Sponsor!⭐️
https://arcsupport.org.au/donate

I’m guessing that some of you may not have heard the latest news on the Bush Telegraph. So I’ll fill you in...
ARC told me that recently,  they have had to implement essential software changes in order to adapt to an ever changing environment ( I guess they told me because I’m a bit of an expert on environmental issues)

They have moved to a new system now to make managing sponsorships easier. And they’d love you to be part of it! 

Their animal support programs are all funded by small monthly donations that come automatically from their sponsors. That’s it. That’s how they keep going. 

All of the burrow pumps for my wombat cousins, fire equipment, emergency product and animal support, they all come from small donations. 

You can see ARC’s work in action here www.arcsupport.org.au/gallery

ARC are actually going to struggle soon to keep the programs going (they don’t run debt, they just do what they can with what they have)

So...to scratch the bark to the sap, ARC need more monthly sponsors! 
Please, if you can help by becoming a small monthly sponsor, you will be helping ARC to continue saving animals by supporting rescues. 

🖊 To sign up as a sponsor click here - https://arcsupport.org.au/donate and when you donate just make sure the “make this donation monthly” is ticked. That’s it. 

A sleeping koala 🐨 in a gum 🌱tree could do it! 😊

Thank you so much for your support

Please share to all pounds, dog rescuers and fosters.  

Petbarn Foundation and Royal Canin has donated the largest ever food support for rescuers in history. ARC has been fortunate to be the key partner for this project across the entire country. 

So far 112 Rescue jobs and 42 Pound jobs have been booked since the original callout a month ago . . some minor delays (remember the huge floods?) and now we are ready to go.

This is all thanks to the amazing support of #royalcanin and the #PetbarnFoundation . 

If your pound or rescue is not on our list, we need to hear from you. If you can log your details here www.arcsupport.org.au/companion we will do the rest. 

This is all over Australia, all locations, ALL STATES including Tasmania. Every rescuer. We have support if you need it. Dog rescuers matter. Stay tuned for more info. 

Thank you again for the enormous support of our many partners in rescue and to the #PetbarnFoundation for everything they do to help animals.
Brisbane and Adelaide - Hub Volunteers needed.

We are now established in 2 new hubs in Adelaide (Cheltenham) and Brisbane (Willawong). We are now looking for a small group of volunteers to help the hub team in getting support to rescuers.

Click the link and we will connect you with the team!
https://arcsupport.org.au/volunteer/

We all do hub work. The ARC hubs are very active in supporting rescue and they are what you make of it. We do open days of donations, supply, liase with local vendors and have huge donations come in to be given away.

This is helping rescuers and animals.

We need people who are prepared to come in, help sort and stack food and medical then help run the send out and pickup days. The Systems we have in place work well and it's backed by a national team that supports rescue.

You can come in as often as you like (some of us literally live at the hub) or just put your name down for local support. All up to you how you engage, but it's great fun and an awesome ARC Hub family.

If you can help please put your name down here (click the link)https://arcsupport.org.au/volunteer/
There are not enough vet nurses or vets. It's an employee's market. If any of you know the industry you will know the vets are screaming out for staff. Dont get me started on the lack of investment in skills for the past 15 years but  . . this your gain.

We have just learned that TAFE is offering CERTIFICATE IV IN VETERINARY NURSING - National Course Code: ACM40418 Fee Free if you are eligible for Job Trainer. 

Share this post, tell your friends, here is where you get more information - https://www.tafensw.edu.au/course/-/c/c/ACM40418-01/Certificate-IV-in-Veterinary-Nursing

Seriously, 2 years ago when we investigated this as part of scholarship programs this was a few thousand dollars.  This is the best possible time to get trained up.

Fee free. we dont need to sell it anymore than that.
Victoria Hub - Sale. Joey and the team working thought medical and craft supplies to rescuers in need.
Where has your funding been spent?  We've updated the numbers for 2021 and here is the breakdown of where your donations have been spent since Jan1 this year.

Donors expect funds it to get to animals in need so we did exactly that, 96% of all donations are spent within 3 months. We dont bank it. This means every month sponsors trust our actions and back the volunteers to keep helping.

You can be an ARC monthly sponsor here www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

WHARES THE MUNEY ARC!

61% of all funds this year was spent on food, rescue supplies and Medical. Getting it in, storing and transporting it to rescuers and animals. This was hundreds of tonnes of food all over Australia.

12% on containment and firetankers. There was far more in December prep time, these were immediately used in the three Q1 emergencies.

5% were donated in funds to small rescue organisations for small specific projects, this is on top of the hundreds of thousands in direct supplies.

4% went on Humidicribs and they are in loan libraries or with rescuers directly (in fact, all the loaners are on loan). Self explanatory! 

2% was spent is our ongoing "small cheap Multi Purpose Vehicles" we make ready for field and rescue work. We dont believe our donors want money wasted on $1m vet trucks, we think that a basic cheap USED vehicle(usually donated or nearly donated) that can get in, get an animal and get it to a vet is far more useful. They can also be used for transport.

8% was spent on vetwork. This is medical and veterinary support for animal rescuers in need, directly applied to vets in key areas.

3% went on the core systems we use to run the business. The help tickets and supporting tools. When you compare this to orgs that have full time development teams this is a tiny amount of our costs. 

Very small odds and ends such as admin (less than 1%), prof services (less than 1%), insurance, bookkeeping, fees etc. Tiny amounts

More details for the whole year in the coming weeks. It's a tough job.

There are 23 hub locations and hundreds of volunteers across Australia with ARC, we support supplies to thousands of rescue volunteers.  

With the help of #PetbarnFoundation #wires and the backing of The Mini Kitty Commune the teams continue to innovate and react to help animals. 
It's not perfect, funds run out fast but get to where they need to be. 

We are so grateful to be able to help rescue animals and support those who do.
