Animal Rescue Collective Supplies Week Commencing 6 January, 2020

Thank you for everyone who continues to support the victims of the Australian Bush Fire crisis. So much information has been reported on the catastrophic events affecting much of Australia, so my initial posts will focus on ways you can assist wildlife and animals affected by this crisis.

Animal Rescue Collective


Please DM or contact me for my home address for large or bulk deliveries. We can accept deliveries at our home each day and have a large, accessible and safe porch area.

Please check with micro-hubs prior to arranging delivery of large stock items,eg bales of hay. Most micro-hubs are private residences or offices and not equipped for large deliveries, unless by prior arrangement.

Thank you

The Animal Rescue Collective is a highly co-ordinated group of professionals and volunteers across Australia collecting and distributing supplies and resources for the rescue and rehabilitation of Australian wildlife and animals.

Hundreds of micro-pods have been established across Victoria, NSW and South Australia. Each micro-hub is managed by a volunteer who has nominated their residence, place of business or both to receive donations on a weekly basis; co-ordinate the supplies required each week; liaise with the managing Animal Rescue Collective teams for maintaining a database of supplies and delivering to the distribution point at the end of each week.

Key Dates

As soon as possible at the beginning of each week, we’ll publish a list of supplies required for delivery to micro-hubs.


Donations for the current week should be delivered to your local micro-hub by Thursday weekly, unless otherwise extended by your local micro-hub.


Micro-hub managers will deliver all donated goods to the distribution centre, early on Sunday mornings for transit to affected areas.

Hi Karan,
Thank you for all of your efforts and time with putting this all together!

I’m gathering people’s donations from your list from the inner west area (Yarraville Newport) area and I’m hoping to drop them to your business address on Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon so you can get the fruit fresh. Let me know if this isn’t suitable for you and if there’s anything else I can do to assist with the efforts. I’m on school holidays and ready and able to assist.

Also if there’s anyone that contacts you in this area that wants a drop off point I’m happy for you to direct them my way and I can deliver them to you. I just can’t register as a micro hub as I can only deliver to you and I can’t store xo

Warmest regards & keep up your excellent work,
Michelle Antoniou

Hi Michelle – what a wonderful effort and generous contribution, thank you! I’ll definitely keep your offer to receive goods in mind, it’s really useful to know. Looking forward to meeting you when you drop by. ❤️

Hi there Karan,
I am planning to make some balls with my kids today. We are in Sth Melbourne. Can you let me know please where the best drop off point is for us? Happy to drive up to 15k.
Many thanks!

Hi Louisa – how wonderful you’ve been able to do this activity with your children. I love this idea! Louisa, I’m awaiting an update from the region co-ordinator with location options for you. Please bear with me and I’ll have this to you asap. IN the meantime, please ensure the balls stay frozen. Thank you for your generous contribution <3

Hi Karan,
Thankyou for all your hard work. Do you have any collection points in Queensland or are we too far away? I live in the Brisbane Valley about an hour from Brisbane, 45mins from Ipswich and on the doorstep of the Lockyer Valley. The kids want to make some Fauna balls and I thought it would be a good way for us to help as we don’t have much money to donate.
Hoping that you do!
Thanks Cathy Jackson.

Hello Cathy – how wonderful you’re willing to do this, thank you for your generosity. I am currently trying to source information for drop-off points in locations other than Victoria. The Animal Rescue Collective is forming sub-groups to manage the sheer volume of support for making Fauna Wildfood Balls. Please bear with me while I try to find out the information and come back to you. Warm regards from a fellow (ex) Queenslander!
