Partner Proof of Engagement

As a partner making a donation you want to see your product in the field, helping animals in need. ARC provides comprehensive POE which is showcased on our national sites and documented with each job both large and small. This assists your organisation in assigning support and proving value of your donation engagement. 

These are examples and a live feed of images as they go live on our page including POE images. ARC logs thousands of rescue and outreach interactions ever year and Petbarn is tagged, images shared and rescuers/animals supported by the active community. The most important thing is food and support going to animals in need.

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!

“I found out that Feed for Friends - the Trustums Hill Rd Hub in Woodburn - was in desperate need of animal food after I dropped off some bowls, leads etc that I had spare.”

From ARC Lismore Hub Volunteer Rose :    

“A big crate of freshly donated blankets and a crate of warm jumpers and a load of dog food just delivered to our mates at @Feed4Friends Woodburn  for their distribution day this Saturday!!! 💛🐾
(There’s more dog food but it didn’t fit in my photo! )

Feed for Friends are based in Woodburn, about 20mins south of Lismore on the highway. 

A beautiful small town right on the river, just one of the many river towns absolutely decimated by the floods.💔

Feed for Friends do incredible, incredible work with local farm animals and livestock 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.

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

Morning! For those who watched @The ProjectTV  on Sunday,you may have seen Leisa and Gidge being interviewed. ( if you missed it- you catch up here: https://fb.watch/dMVr45-hgr/ ) 

We’ve been helping these two since the beginning and I just love them both so much. 
Their lives were changed forever when the floods deluged Leisa and Gidge’s home in February. 

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

Anyway, I’m just about to take some freshly donated warm blankets over to them now. 

Gidge sent me this photo as a thank you.

George now after more than three months in care ❤️
CALLOUT! URGENT NEED! ORPHAN JOEYS NEED YOUR HELP!🦘🫵🦘We need LARGE size🦘🦘🦘JOEY POUCH SETS!

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.
 
** If you could please make Pouch Sets - pouch plus 3  liners - and ⚠️Remember - liners MUST be 100% cotton flannelette OR 100% soft cotton ( to protect fragile baby skin) and please remember to use French Seams for the liners - HINT: Hem the top of the liner BEFORE French seaming for a smoother finish)
⚠️Please note ⚠️
When making all size pouches, the **OUTERS are made the SAME width as the LINERS**
We have been getting a few lately where the outer is much narrower than the inner. 
To sum up: 
🟡the OUTER is the same 📏 width as the LINER and generally cut ✂️ 5cm shorter than the liner.
➡️Get the patterns here: 
https://craftguild.org.au/2020/05/04/joey-pouches/

📦 When you have completed your pouch sets, and are ready to sent them in, please complete the Craft Donation link below and one of our Craft Team will be in touch to let you know where to send it. Keep an eye on your ‘spam’ email in case it ends up there 🙃

End of Financial Year – EOFY - Tax deductible donations to help Animals in need!

You can make a tax deductible donation here - www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

A tax deductible donation that ensures that custom supportive garments and medical assistance are given directly to Wildlife Rescuers and Carers... Australia wide – Every day.

This is our BIG CALLOUT for the year for donations to help the Craft Guild!

We spend donations on Animal Rescue. 

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.

We spend it on fabric for making custom items - if the fabric needed can't be sourced through donations or freecycle. 

We are an audited charity helping animals in need. 
©ARC is part of Animal Rescue Support Incorporated ABN 25151709481 - a registered charity in Australia

The Craft Guild is a global community of innovative creators that work together to make custom supportive products for animals in need. Through this we save lives, improve care, reduce the burden on rescuers and bring global awareness to the plight of our unique and precious wildlife. 

We make craft. It saves lives.

You can make a tax deductible donation here - www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

So what do you do with all that craft? 

This is one of the most innovative and useful programs on the planet.  The Craft Guild has more than 200,000 members worldwide and as the need arises they turn out custom craft items that are physically used in day to day rescue. Everyday.

This is not a wasted effort, everything from possum palaces to joey pouches are created by people all over the world and are then used in the field. You cant buy this stuff, you can only make it . . and that’s what your craft guild does.

The ARC Craft Guild has a large team of national moderators, central clearing and logistics to get the craft where it is needed. We talk to Wildlife rescuers all day and know what they want, what seasons we are heading into and what is needed.
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.

Your tax deductible donation will help us continue supporting the wildlife rescuers who spend every day rescuing and caring for animals. 
Please donate here: - www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

⚠️Wildlife Are NOT Pets ⚠️
🖊 Please share this post/comment your experiences/thoughts 

❌Raised by a member of the public on cows milk. 
❌Passed around to be cuddled by young children...
😢Being only 900 grams...poor little Shirley would not have survived....”

This is Shirley -  a Western Grey kangaroo joey and this week’s 
⚠️Wildlife are Not Pets ⚠️ 
story comes from ❌Shane at ❌BWR in Western Australia 

Shirley’s story needs to be told, shared and re-shared to raise awareness EVERYWHERE so that the ignorant cruelty that happened to Shirley never EVER happens again to any wildlife.

Let’s continue Shirley’s story:
“Shirley got sick...so the MOP ( member of the public) who was keeping her contacted BWR...I took Shirley into care ...she was literally skin on bone...”

You can donate to help ARC continue to help wildlife like Shirley here: https://www.arcsupport.org.au/donate

“Shirley came from a very compromised beginning...
I stabilised Shirley and because in pinky season I already have so many in care ... I asked registered wildlife carer Jenny McNeill if she could take Shirley into care...Jenny  is one of the best carers I know....within a few weeks...little Shirley was thriving....and look at her now xx Thankyou Jenny “

This is a sad story that happens all too often when misguided members of the public selfishly choose to keep wildlife as household pets -  always causing suffering,  and usually resulting in a tragic outcome for those animals. Exactly as happened to this poor helpless little one. 

Bridgetown Wildlife Rescue has had many different wildlife species handed into them - when people who have tried to  keep them as pets realise that
 ‘Wildlife make Terrible Pets’ 
and that they were totally out of their depth trying to raise one. 

Western grey kangaroo joeys ... black glove wallabies...a lot of possums... and magpies - just to name a few. These animals and birds are always compromised- and often dying - by the time they are surrendered. 

In Western Australia, No-one - not registered carers or members of the public - are permitted to keep any wildlife as pets.  
If a member of the public or an unlicensed carer finds wildlife they MUST be handed over to a registered shelter, carer, vet or wildlife officer. If you don't surrender wildlife within 72 hours you will be prosecuted and fined $2000.
This is for any wildlife in your possession. You  MUST be licenced.
Wildlife carers or members of the public have to apply for, and have approved, a special licence:  “APPLICATION FOR FAUNA POSSESSING (OTHER PURPOSES)
 to enable them to keep wildlife for the purpose of rehabilitating for release into the wild.

We will keep saying it. 
⚠️Wildlife are Not Pets ⚠️
Please share this post. 
ALL wildlife need permit protection and ALL injured and orphaned wildlife need immediate care by trained, registered wildlife carers. 

Thankfully, Shirley is one of the lucky few who was rescued from this neglect and now has a happy outcome. 
From Shane: 
“Shirley has recovered and grown. She is coming back to Bridgetown Wildlife Rescue sanctuary with her brother and sister tommorow.. this will be their forever home at BWR xxxx “

But please, for Shirley’s sake and for all other wildlife, help us share her story to spread the word that:  

⚠️Wildlife Are Not (And Never Should Be) Pets ⚠️

Each one matters. 
Each one deserves safety and protection from neglect and cruelty. 
Each and every one.

Hand them over to your nearest Wildlife Shelter. 
❌Not tomorrow. 
❌Not next week. 
✅Today.

“This is 14 year old ladies’ man, Thomas - who SWAM HIS WAY through flood waters to be rescued“

Thomas’ owner, Ina is so thankful for what the ARC Flood Support Animal Foster team did for Thomas.”

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

From ARC Lismore Hub volunteer 👷Chelsea:

“I just received a beautiful phone call with a very happy ending and thought I would share 🙂 
One of our flood cats - 14 year old ladies’ man Thomas - who SWAM HIS WAY through flood waters to be rescued and taken to Goonellabah vets, was placed with a beautiful Byron Bay foster carer, Sandra,  in mid March.

 I just got a call from his extremely grateful owner Ina,  to say ❤️they're back in their home in Lismore and Thomas is settling back in with them really well. 

Ina is so thankful for what the ARC Flood Support Animal Foster team did. 

She said it made their life so much easier knowing Thomas was with a loving, peaceful foster family. 

The foster carer wouldn't accept any money so Ina is making a donation to ARC in gratitude for the much needed support. AWESOME WORK, TEAM! ❤”

This is Miracle, you can read about her story on our page. Miracle was rescued during the floods and has certainly beaten all the odds to make it so far
Support for Tonga continues long after the volcano that devastated the island has been forgotten. The damage to the community is extensive and supply lines are only now recovering.

You can donate to this project here. https://arcsupport.org.au/donations/tonga/

Thanks to Royal Canin, Petbarn foundation and hundreds of donors, medical supplies and even Wildlife support orgs we have been able to get another container load of supplies to the island.
Joey from the Gippsland hub team arranged this massive load of a full container from the team. 

This was no easy feat with huge supply loads coming into the Gippo superhub and then outbounded to container ship for supply. It's a big job!

Where does it go? The team at Tonga Animal Welfare Society immediately get it out to help animals in need, with a massive redistribution across the island in FTW support, food, medical visits and support for locals.  
You can see some of that work here https://www.facebook.com/Tonga-Animal-Welfare.../photos/...

Thank you to all our sponsors and supporters for helping the team and supporting animals in Tonga in this national emergency.
TONGA - LARGE SUPPLY LOAD TO MAFF CLINIC AT TOKOMOLOLO - ANIMAL RESCUE COOPERATIVE -  AID SHIPMENT TO TONGA! 

ARC Tsunami Aid has arrived on the main island, Tongatapu - ready for distribution throughout the villages and to the Outer Islands ❤️

Come rain, hail or shine, @HomelessOutreachSunshineCoast consistently travel across the Sunshine Coast to provide friendship, food, bedding and essential resources to individuals and groups of people that sleep rough and in vehicles. 

With the help of the @PetbarnFoundation, we have been able to help their fury friends too. Kilos of quality dog food, treats and worming tablets have reached the homeless community of the Sunshine Coast so that they can care for their unconditional companions.

Just Cats are an important major rescue group in Tasmania. Anyone who takes on council and trapping work deserves all the support they can get as it is a real and very hard job.

Just cats run programs and support at scale. They are a community-oriented organisation with a mission to advance the welfare of all cats and kittens by:

- providing shelter, food, veterinary treatment, affection and security to rescued, abandoned or surrendered cats and kittens
facilitating adoptions

 - providing boarding facilities, including crisis care
promoting responsible cat ownership in the Tasmanian community through education, training and support.

We were so grateful to have Just cats visit the hub yesterday and we managed to cram the Getz full of supplies and support for the team, as much litter as we could fit, some mixed medical and gloves and of course a UV torch.

The hub team is working across every rescuer in Tasmania large and small, and for us it is a priveledge to be able to support them with small help when we can.

Thank you to Rachel and all the Just Cats team for visiting!

“…and I just wanted all these lovely crafters, and the fabulous people that organised them, to know how much it's so very appreciated, I've seen it first hand from this end. ❤️

Hi Animal Rescue Cooperative Craft Guild Crafters! 
I hope that you enjoy reading some  feedback from some of our dedicated carers about the beautiful and lifesaving craft you make ❤️ 

📣• From Janelle Olivia 
Owner and full time carer at Taswild

“My goodness you are a skilled & generous bunch of people! 💓
A little care package from #arctasmania arrived in the post this morning & it's absolutely perfect for my current tiny tot. 
He's a little Australian spider monkey AKA tiny baby brushtail possum joey. (I've called him Spidey 💙)
Weighing only 186g and on 3-4 hourly feeds he's going to love having all these amazing little possum houses to play and sleep in when he gets bigger!
But right now, he's straight in the Jebba snuggle sack. My oh my don't I wish they came in human sizes! 

Thank you so much crafters. These are perfect! How can I possum-bly thank you (see what I did there 😆)”

📣 • From Kim Butler
Volunteer at ACT Wildlife: 

“It is a most wonderful thing that you all crafters do for these precious little ones and I know their carers really love and appreciate them so much ❤️ 
I have been there when carers have received the incredible pouches you beautiful people make for them and they are so appreciative and heart is warmed with love ❤️ you should all be very proud, thank you!! Xx

They do mean so much to carers , saves them not only money and time but I know they really appreciate the love that goes into making each and every one! 
To have so many lovely new pouches for their babies in care 💕 knowing they can put that mountain of washing off a bit lol and even throw out some of the very well worn or overly soiled and partly destroyed ones, knowing they have so many more to use now. 

It's a real delight to see the joy of them receiving such wonderful gifts. It's better than any Christmas ive seen. 😆 and I just wanted all these lovely crafters, and the fabulous people that organised them, know how much it's so very appreciated, I've seen it first hand from this end. ❤️ I just want to say Thank you all, you are loved for what you do. ❤️”

📣 • From Janelle Olivia:

“Kim Butler not to mention, knowing that the little critters we have are so warm and toasty and comfortable because of the crafters skills and dedication to nailing these amazing designs! Saves us so much time having to come up with something suitable. 💚”

Thank you to all of our Craft Guild members who give their time and talent to make items to help the animals. 
I hope that you have enjoyed reading this feedback from some of our dedicated carers ❤️

Gertrude a Tawny

Released after two nights from the floods.

Gertrude was found in a low tree unable to move due to her feathers being so wet from the rain.

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

“These two bubs came into care today..They were abandoned  at a rental property in Collie WA...the people ..just left them...💔”

🖊 Please share this post/comment your experiences/thoughts 

This week’s story comes from Shane at @BridgetownWildlifeRescue in Western Australia 

“This is Candy and Socks - two Western Grey Kangaroo joeys 🦘❤️ 🦘 

Their story needs to be told, shared and re-shared to raise awareness EVERYWHERE so that the ignorant cruelty that happened to Candy and Socks never EVER happens again to any wildlife.

Let's hear their story:
“The little boy Socks, is 9 kgs and the little girl Candy is 6 kgs..
Both should still be with their mum 💔
In the wild, they would be spending  1 -2 hours out of her pouch.  Still under their  Mum’s supervision.  They would be having  multiple feeds a day. 

The lovely lady who runs the farm found them in the abandoned house .....and her beautiful  daughter brought them to me today   

Until a carer could be found, the next door neighbour who is 83..went over to the house..and lit the pot belly stove for them every night..because it was so cold...
She fed them a bottle in the morning and one at night....from the biolac she found in the house.. 
What a beautiful lady to do this...

I asked the ladies daughter  to name the bubs....The little girl is Candy..and the boy is Socks...

They are a little scared..but doing ok...xx”

This is Mum and Bub Brushtail. Rescued during the floods. Mum was extremely emaciated and weak and we were unsure if she would make it.
Mum has now fully recovered her weight is maintained and her strength is back and they are going back for release tomorrow.
Poss is back today. 💕 She comes and goes as she pleases and we haven’t seen her for awhile. It’s quite warm today so she’s spread out like she’s in a lounge chair. 🤣
