Plant-based actor Zac Efron has called on his fans to help animals affected by wildfires in California.

The wildfires in Northern California have already left around 30 people confirmed dead – with a reported 200 more unaccounted for. And the fires have affected animals too – with wild animals in burning habitats and some companion animals left behind as humans fled.

Now Efron – who announced he had adopted a vegan diet earlier this year – has asked more than 30 million followers on Instagram to help out by donating.

According to vegan media outlet LIVEKINDLY, Efron took to his Instagram stories to write: “Swipe up to help the animals displaced by the Woolsey and Hill Fires. They are taking in domestic animals such as dogs, cats, and birds, as well as livestock.

“My heart goes out to all those caught in the California Fires.”

He asked fans to donate to the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund.

Vegan star Miley Cyrus

A vegan celebrity who has spoken out about the fires is musician Miley Cyrus, who lost her home. Writing on Instagram stories, the star said she was ‘devastated’ by the fires affecting her community.

“I am one of the lucky ones,” she added. “My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely and that’s all that matters right now.

“My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family and friends stand strong. I am grateful for all I have left. Sending so much love and gratitude to the firefighters and LA country Sheriff’s department…I love you more than ever.”
