Dr Harry lends a paw in Ipswich

DOCTOR Harry has visited Ipswich to support pet owners and their animals affected by devastating flooding.

More than 450 dogs were left homeless by the recent flooding throughout Queensland and the lives of hundreds of stock and native animals were at risk as well.

While in Ipswich Doctor Harry visited the local evacuation centre for pets and their owners as well as the local pound, which was flooded out in the disaster.

At the evactuation centre Doctor Harry helped out Mouse and Bobby the greyhounds and their owner Robert Peschke.

Robert and his wife lost their house in the flooding, escaping with only their dogs and what they could fit in their car.

Doctor Harry also gave a helping paw to Bella, one of the 450 dogs left homeless by the flooding.

Bella is currently being housed at the Animal Welfare League at Coombabah.

You can catch Doctor Harry's trip to Ipswich and his tips on helping those affected and how to prepare yourself and your pets for a natural disaster on Better Homes and Gardens when it returns to the Seven Network next Friday, February 4.
