Where can I access animal feed or donate feed?

People in the Wooroloo bushfire area who need feed for their animals can now access it for free from the following locations:
  • Gidgegannup Showgrounds, corner of Toodyay Road and Old Coach Road West in Gidgegannup
  • 4 Thomas Street, Chidlow
All feed has been donated and includes hay and small animal feed. Feed is able to be accessed 24 hours a day.

If anyone would like to donate feed, please email the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development in the first instance at sawec@dpird.wa.gov.au or phone Peta Fissioli on 0409 676 348.


Where can I donate or volunteer to help?

During an incident it is difficult to manage an influx of donations or onboard new volunteers, which also brings people unnecessarily into the vicinity of the control point or evacuation centre. 

We appreciate your offers of assistance, but the most helpful thing you can do for us is to stay safe by keeping up to date with the latest warning information.
