Edition 11 of Animal Aid News, published by the Victorian Animal Aid Trust. The feature article focusses on how the events of Black Saturday and the succeeding weeks affected the operations of Animal Aid's shelter in Coldstream, Victoria. It graphically details its response to the influx of some 511 fire affected animals in diary format beginning on Saturday 7th February until 29th March 2009. Animal Aid also gives special mention and thanks to local businesses and communities, along with their staff and volunteers, for their support during this challenging time. Other articles include information relating to how Animal Aid supporters can donate to the organisation.

Animals play a vital role in people's lives and their communities and many thousands of pets and livestock were threatened, injured and killed by the events of Black Saturday. Animal Aid played a vital role through their commitment to care for these animals in their clinic and shelter. Important too, is the recognition given to the Victorian people through their donations of time, money, resources and supplies to services such as Animal Aid.
