Saving Animals in Need
The RSPCA is an independent, community-based charity, providing animal care and protection services across the country. As a federated organization, the RSPCA’s societies run animal rehoming shelters, investigate and prosecute animal cruelty complaints, and educate the community on animal welfare and responsible pet ownership.
The RSPCA’s mission is to prevent cruelty to animals by actively promoting their care and protection. To achieve this, the RSPCA works to enforce animal cruelty laws and advocate for new legislation where required. It works with government and industry to establish standards for animal care across a number of industries. RSPCA member societies in states and territories also operate animal care and adoption facilities and seek to raise community awareness of animal welfare issues.
Why It Matters:
Did you know, in 2020 alone, 26,809 animals arrived at RSPCA New South Wales (NSW) in need of help?
Unfortunately, animal cruelty is still prevalent in Australia. The RSPCA NSW tirelessly cares for, treats, protects and re-homes animals across the state. They strive to maintain an open-door policy as much as they can, so no abandoned, neglected, injured or surrendered animal is turned away or forgotten. That is why it is crucial that we improve animal welfare education to keep our animals safe. Animals deserve our protection and respect – they make our lives full and remind us what it means to live humanely. They can’t fight for themselves, so we must.
