Storm wreaks havoc on our dogs

South Burnett RSPCA acting manager, Bonny Heit said the current storms have meant a busy period for her team.

"We have been getting constant calls since the storms started," she said.

Ms Heit advised they have set up an answering machine response to assist with the workload.

"All we can do is take down their numbers and send them the information in a text message," she said.

If you have lost an animal, Ms Heit advised call 1300 37 36 to file a lost report.

"There is also a facebook group 'Lost Pet Coordinator South Burnett' and you can add a photo of the animal there," she said.

"You can also contact all the local vets in case the animal is taken there to scan for chip/ injured."

It is recommend to get the animal scanned for a microchip as soon as possible at a local vet or RSPCA shelter.

Ms Heit advised RSPCA do not pick up animals.

"You can contact the South Burnett Regional Council 4189 9100 to pick up," she said.

Council do not pick up on weekends.
