She said, ‘The animals could have become stressed with the smoke and noise so it was nice to know that the firefighters were there calming them down.’
Staff returned Friday morning and found a note from the Birnam Rural Fire Brigade.
It read, ‘We brought in your blankets so they didn’t get ash on them. We also told all the dogs that we were here to keep them safe.’
AWLQ took to Facebook to share the note, writing, ‘Thank you to the wonderful crew from the Birnam Rural Fire Brigade who kindly stayed at AWLQ’s Beenleigh Animal Rehoming Centre until 1am this morning to ensure our animals were safe.

The firefighting team wrote on their own Facebook page, ‘It was such a pleasure making sure the dogs and a cow were safe.’
