Rescue Cats Safe Haven is one of the longest friendships we've had in Tasmania. When ARC first started (long before the fires) in 2019, we reached out to Tasmania first and already knew Lesley from her work helping in NSW rescuers. From there we set up with Trish and Lesley the first ARC hubs in Australia along with Bec in Adelaide.

Yes, our first hubs were in Tasmania and Radelaide. Long before the fires.

Anyway, having the team come by today to do a pickup was awesome, this is still pulling from the enormous support load we've had come in from Rebecca, Joey, Sarah and the team over to ARC Tassie.

RCSH is one of the most well regarded and awesome rescuers in Tasmania. They also work very closely in helping others in rescue everywhere.

As with all the pickups it's litter, a bit of food (more to come we hope), UV torches and some helpful equipment for shelter work.

Thank you again for dropping over to the hub today!

✅We put money into shelters for:
Food, rescue and medical.

✅We spend it on postage of Craft Guild crafted items directly to carers and rescuers – all at no cost to them.

Then we ship the craft to them... free of charge (along with other items they may need).

Often this is the only care they have received in months, so we can be a vital lifeline to supporting them. It’s important, the work of wildlife rescuers matter.

📸Orphan lamb rescue farm
There is a sudden increase in animal rescuers promoting Giving Circle on social media, with the headline of potentially huge dollars ($500000) to attract votes.

If you know of an organisation doing this, please share them this link. You really need to think about this.

 - The TOP grant/prize in the current Animal rescue round is $4000. (based on todays data). Not $500k. See screenshot in comments.

 - To do that (based on todays numbers), you need people to donate MORE THAN $4000 to the site.

 - You are giving away your database of your best donors on your best day, right now, to make that happen. The most active ones right now.

Think about it. Is it better off putting up a standard donation link from  #giveeasy  then the donations are all yours and you don't give away your donor list?

Read the terms. Read the privacy section. 

"when they vote, join, complete a survey, create a Giving Circle or make a Donation, MyGivingCircle may disclose their name, contact details and Donation amount (if applicable) to any Charities that the user has identified as one of their favourite charities, or a charity who we believe may be of interest to the user, who may use that information for future donor communication"

The cost of buying your donor database, nothing. Your donors are literally paying to give it up to your potential competitors. 

Dont walk into this without really reading and thinking about it. You will not win lotto. Screenshot of current example in comments.

Give easy link is here - https://www.giveeasy.org/ we are not affiliated. But they do a lot of good for rescue.
WIRES is the largest donor to Animal Rescue in Australia. One of the key programs they help with is Medical and Craft support across the country.

Please share this story as everyone should know about the craft guild and it's work with WIRES to help animals.

The WIRES and ARC medical/craft program has run for over 2 years now and tracks an astonishing amount of support across the country. From our hubs we ship out a tonnage (literally tons) of hand made crafted items that you cant buy, customised for possums, joeys and all sorts of Wildlife.

WIRES and ARC also ship medical. A lot of medical. Supplies of syringes, fluids, rescue kits, field dressings. Enormous amounts of support supplies are sent to wildlife carers all over the country with only two questions asked.

 - Do you have animals
 - Do you need help?

If you need medical, craft or small wildlife supplies log a request here at www.arcsupport.org.au/wildlife - thats the Wildlife support queue WIRES helps sponsor 

The craft guild is the largest group of it's type on the planet. This is not a made up number. Over 200 thousand members and thousands of contributors supporting the creation of crafted items for animals all over the country. It's big. When we recently did the callout for making support items in the floods we were talking "shipping containers" big. 

Everyone in the Craft Guild matters. We track a mammoth amount of support from our Wildlife and WIRES partnership. You can see the stats on the dashboard here. 

https://arcsupport.org.au/wiresdashboard/

WIRES is the largest donor to Wildlife rescue groups in Australia, this is an undisputed fact. Tens of millions have been assigned and spent in causes all over Australia.  

This is a lot of small support projects ranging from medical supplies and craft through to larger support items when we can afford it. This funding comes from many sources in donations including WIRES and others. 

You can also donate to help the Wildlife rescuers we support here www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

Why did WIRES pick ARC for this project? We have capacity already, we have invested in supporting facilities and bring quality partners to shore up the load. We also have Wildlife experts on team who know what to do.

What do we do with/for WIRES.

ARC's role in life is an agile support ground team for rescuers. Because of the work we do with small rescue and our hubs we can reach out fast to hot spots and help rescuers grow sustainably. 
We also have the direct day to day positive engagement with hundreds of rescuers. When time/funding is right we can action that help either ourselves, through sponsors and with WIRES. This helps them see places that need focus and offer to help.

What do WIRES do for ARC?

The knowledge and buy in of WIRES in NSW is immeasurable. They are not just "the biggest in the country" but the carers have decades of experience, contacts, skills, field work and quality you cannot get by turning up in the last year. This means we can be more effective in what we do to help across all of rescue.

When someone sees a WIRES logo on a hub or on an email it means quality. Quality training, systems, processes and hundreds of animals in direct care. They bring credibility to anyone they work with. WIRES has the systems, experience and processes that many dont.

Gertrude a Tawny

She came in to care and enjoyed a few days in the warmth to dry out and get her strength back before being released a few days later
Board member of a charity? Please read.

Recently ARC has had to make contact with a few board members of other charities in order to manage our admin. We were surprised that some board members were not aware they were on the board. One wasnt aware he was the president of a charity. 

We also had to assist in 3 orgs where a board member had made it deliberately difficult for the charity. "Why be there out of spite". Also, why take the risks. 

If you know a board member of a charity, they may not know this. It's far more than just a status. 

When you join a charity board, you take on liabilities and risk. It's not just a random thing because a friend asked you for a favour.

As a board member you may carry the liability for the actions of the charity. You are legally bound to the actions it's directors.

For example. If your charity cant pay it's bills, or there is a lawsuit, defamation claim, breaches of duty of care or other disputes, it is just the same as if you are an owner of a company. Someone needs to pay and it isnt the members, it may be you.

Some examples of what can happen.

A rescue organization who discovered a significant debt issue with several vets. The directors may hold liability for the overspending if the vets called in that amount.

A rescue regularly makes statements on social media about others ends up in court. The board members resign during this process. It doesn't matter, they were still directors. (there have been cases like this where property was impacted).

A rescue who had been given a significant grant and a member spent it elsewhere. The directors were accountable for the grant and needed the funding to be repaid before the grant period ended.

If an action is brought against you or your organization, the financial ramifications can be significant. Personal assets may be at risk such as the family home. 

Here is a read on a thing called "Directors and Officers insurance". It exists for a reason.

https://www.ourcommunity.com.au/files/Ansvar-directors.pdf . 

If a board member of your charity is doing something that exposes you to a claim, you are personally at risk. If it is on social media, you cant claim you didnt know.

If you are a board member of a charity and you dont know this, ask. Its all written in detail on the ACNC pages. Look for "good governance". 

Lastly, and this is for the board members. We know you get "free public assessments" from social media about how you run, we get the same. But the people doing that are not carrying the burdens and workload that you are, nor have they started their own charity to prove they can to it. 

Charities exist for good reasons, they do this to help others and in our case, to help animals. It can look a bit "schoolyard" sometimes.  But they are there for a good reason. 

If someone is giving their opinion about another charity and how it runs, they aren't the person carrying that risk. Everything seems simple until you do it yourself.  What you are doing matters.

We will talk a bit more about this in the coming months but wanted to share this important point first as we were asked to by a rescuer, just to help them get this across. We hope this is useful.

📣CALLOUT FOR RESCUE BASKET KITS for 🟡Western Australia. 
🧵SEWERS we need 👉your help!
Due to the 🥵 heat and 
🔥 fire conditions,  the West Australian team are experiencing a high demand for rescue basket kits.

⭐️This is a “30 Minute Beginner Friendly” pattern!⭐️

♻️It’s a great scrap buster - you can piece all of your scraps together

✅It’s not complicated and doesn’t take too long - 30 minutes of your time! 

🧵Here’s some advice from Ella,  who has just finished making some Rescue Basket Kits:
“ It's also great for using up leftovers.  If you cut 4 pieces of 35 cm to make up the 138 cm for the side. A 42 cm  by 30 cm piece for the bottom. So all relative small bits!”

🧺 Rescue basket kits are made to fit a standard size covered basket used by many wildlife rescuers.

One basket liner and three pads means they can replace the pad when it becomes dirty ( baby animals poo a lot).

🦘If you’ve ever found an animal by the side of the road with a joey in its pouch and called your local wildlife rescue to come and help, this is what they use.

They can be made in two ways, 
🟡stretchy fabric and 🟡non stretchy.. patterns are here:

The ARC Craft Hub have recently received a great many requests for the large size pouch sets...and now we have got only one large pouch set left! 

There has been an increase in the number of orphaned and injured joeys coming into care due to road trauma, and they desperately need the warmth and security of a soft and cosy pouch to help them in their recovery. 

This large size pouch suits just furred kangaroos and wallabies - little babies around six months old.

From the ☎️ARC Flood Assistance for Animals Helpline:
“Animal concern was one of the biggest issues. 
Many more worried about their pets than their homes and properties being flooded. “

📧From: Wisemans Ferry, New South Wales, Flood Community Volunteers  

☎️ARC Flood Assistance for Animals Helpline
 📧 Incoming • Requests for Help 
📦 Outgoing • Respond • Help • Care

To donate to our work in the floods visit www.arcsupport.org.au/donations/floods 

In response to Wisemans Ferry Flood Community Volunteers contacting the ☎️ARC Helpline,  ARC Leichhardt NSW Hub 👷‍♂️Volunteers have supplied them with:  
⭐️Two huge pallets full of pet food, farm animal food and other essential supplies to help the animals in their community survive and thrive following the devastating floods. 

Here is Margie from Wisemans Ferry Flood Community Volunteers:

“The March 2022 flood was one of the biggest we have seen in many, many years. The entire Eastern Seaboard was hit particularly hard. Many lost everything.
The Wisemans Ferry community was saddened and shocked at the damage to property and livelihoods. We were also aware of the very personal trauma felt by many in our area and surrounds as the water rose.
Our community and those from far afield stepped up and helped as they saw the urgent need unfold. 

You guys were one of those who helped so much !
Thank you for the many products you assisted us with. 

Animal concern was one of the biggest issues. 
Many more worried about their pets than their homes and properties being flooded. 

The animal food and other items were distributed to those in serious need. Many recipients were tearful.

We are truly grateful and humbled by your kindness .

Once again "THANK YOU"
Sincerely

For and on behalf of all the volunteers that helped with the food/ supply distribution
