An Orange veterinary practice is seeking pet food and supplies to give to people affected by the Sir Ivan fire near Dunedoo.

Canobolas Family Pet Hospital is taking part in the bush fire appeal.

The pet hospital is particularly seeking dog food and some cat food that will be delivered on Saturday.

The bushfires have been called some the worst NSW has ever seen with many people losing homes and properties, and sadly, there are reports of an extensive loss of livestock.

There are many people and their pets who have been affected by these fires.

Still unable to return home many people do not yet know what they are going home to and supplies are an issue.  

Donations of pet food and animal supplies will be transported to affected areas on Saturday.

If there are still donations that come in after that, a second delivery will be organised.

Donations can be dropped into the pet hospital at 10 William Street, Orange.
