Over the past week raging wildfires have destroyed the areas of Yarloop and Waroona, just South of Perth, Australia.

Unfortunately, many animals were injured by the fires. Waroona Veterinary Clinic has been documenting the animals arriving due to wildfire injury.

The clinic has been treating all fire victims for free. They have also collected food, toys, and bedding, not only for local animals, but for families in the area too.
