Double your Donation for One Day Only with RSPCA’s ‘Give to Get Them Home’ Posted on October 3, 2023 For one day only, animal lovers will be given the power to double their impact when they donate to RSPCA NSW on Thursday, 5th of October 2023, with ‘Give to Get Them Home’. A group of generous donors and corporate partners will be matching donations to RSPCA NSW during Give to Get Them Home in the hopes of raising $500,000 for the animals in our care. RSPCA NSW Senior Fundraising Manager, Phoebe Brasher, said the one-day appeal is a rare opportunity for supporters to boost their contribution towards helping the 13,000 animals that turn to RSPCA NSW for help each year. “This special day is all about multiplying the impact of your generosity. When you donate on Give to Get Them Home, every dollar you contribute will be matched, effectively doubling your support for our animals in need,” said Ms Brasher. “These animals deserve to find their forever home and your gift will go towards vet checks, desexing, microchipping and vaccinating animals in our care, helping to prepare them for adoption.” Donations made during Give to Get Them Home will help dogs like Zarli the 8-year-old Bullmastiff who has been waiting 465 days to be adopted from the RSPCA NSW Hunter Shelter. RSPCA NSW is seeing animals stay in our shelter longer than ever, with adult dogs waiting to find their forever home five times longer than they were two years ago. On average, it costs RSPCA NSW $1,000 to rescue, care for and find an animal a home. These animals have been neglected, abandoned or mistreated through no fault of their own and deserve a second chance at life $54 can help cover the costs of preparing an animal for adoption. $83 can provide a veterinarian assessment when an animal arrives at the shelter. $200 can provide life-saving antibiotics for a rescued horse. Give to Get Them Home would not be possible without RSPCA NSW’s kind-hearted supporters and corporate sponsors. “We thank Peter Alexander, Elanco, Royal Canin, Thinktank, Mitsubishi Electric, and the RSPCA NSW Circle of Friends for their dedication and unwavering commitment to making a difference in the lives of animals who need it most,” continues Ms. Brasher. All donations of $2 and over are tax deductible and each dollar donated will have a direct and positive impact on improving animal welfare in NSW.
