Put your paws up for RSPCA NSW’s 146th birthday

Today commemorates 146 years of RSPCA NSW’s mission to protect and serve all creatures great and small, and to celebrate we have released a small snapshot of a year at RSPCA NSW.

Over the past year:

  • 30,000 animals with nowhere else to turn came through our doors for vital veterinary care, food and a warm bed, and the chance for a new life.
  • RSPCA NSW inspectors investigated over 15,000 cruelty complaints.
  • Supporters and donors raised a whopping $485,000 across the state for RSPCA Million Paws Walk 2019.

Our job does not stop at animals; we believe behind every animal is a human being who needs guidance, encouragement and help. We have provided education programs to schools and veterinary services to disadvantaged communities across the state.

We receive less than two per cent of our funding from the government and rely almost entirely on the goodwill of our loyal supporters and like-minded members of the community.
