Animal Lovers Called On to Join Campaign
Greater Sydney Local Land Services officer Linda Dedovic said the Animal Ready Community Working group was looking for people who owned one or more companion animal and/or horses or other larger animals to share their stories via video.
“We want real life examples from real life people on their experiences caring for their beloved animals in times of an emergency,” she said.
“If the horror bushfire season we just had tells us anything, it’s that emergencies escalate quickly and can cause huge levels of stress.
“Taking steps to be better prepared before a fire or flood is on your doorstep is the best way to keep you and your animals safe.”
Ms Dedovic said the videos would be used to encourage, inspire and motivate the general community around being prepared to secure the safety of themselves and their animals in the event of crisis.
“We are looking for a range of people from a cross section of our community, the young, elderly, cultural and linguistically diverse, those living with a disability and so on,” she said.
She said successful applicants would have their stories featured on various social media channels and web pages.
“Applications close on 30 September, I encourage people to visit our website and complete the EOI form to register their interest, it’s an important cause,” she said.
