Emergency Care Centres

An emergency care centre is an initial point of contact to FAWNA Inc. Care centres will provide guidance and advice on the care of animals. They are also designated drop off points. Care centres take in casualties, give first aid, obtain veterinary treatment and may care for the animals or transfer it to another FAWNA member.  

Emergency Contact:

If you do not have a care centre in your local area please call 0438 526 660 and they can direct you to someone who can help.
