summer of disaster
TPR Luke Miles was one of the soldiers from 2/14LHR (QMI)
helping RSPCA Metro Inspector Clare Garner deliver fresh food
and water to pets stranded by floodwaters in Bundaberg.
A number of stranded pets were seen by workers conduct-
ing tasks in North Bundaberg.
Residents cut off from their homes also submitted requests
to the RSPCA to check on their animals.

side RSPCA workers to search the area for pets and provide
food, water and other assistance if required.
