RSPCA Rescue Run: Supporting our inspectors for the long run

RSPCA Rescue Run: Supporting our inspectors for the long run

There is still time to step up to the RSPCA Rescue Run start line and get a second wind for animals in need.

Participants can run, walk, or roll the 67 KM by 31 October 2021 and support our RSPCA NSW inspectors on the road investigating animal cruelty.

Each kilometer represents one of the 67 animals experiencing cruelty every day.

Every dollar raised from the RSCPA Rescue Run will enable the 30 inspectors across the state to continue their essential work protecting animals.

  • $31 can provide a kennel, bath and meals for a neglected dog that has been rescued
  • $55 can help pay for the transport of animals to shelters to increase their hopes of being adopted
  • $100 can help keep one of our brave Inspectors on the road fighting animal cruelty

“Every participant in the RSPCA Rescue Run is a step closer to helping every animal in need,” said RSPCA NSW Fundraising Manager Inbar Millo.

“RSPCA NSW inspectors investigate over 14,000 cruelty reports each year and are empowered to do so by the generous support of the community”.

Sign-up to the RSPCA Rescue Run online at to receive a personal fundraising page and access to resources to share your progress with family and friends.

The 67 km challenge can be completed in one day or multiple days during the month and share your progress on social media with RSPCA NSW using @RSPCANSW and #rescuerun.

RSPCA NSW is a community-based, not-for-profit, animal welfare charity that protects, cares for, treats and rehomes animals across New South Wales.

Since 1928, the RSPCA NSW Inspectorate has performed a statutory role in enforcing state animal cruelty legislation. Over 35 dedicated inspectors investigate complaints against all types of animals, in all kinds of situations. The Inspectorate exists first and foremost to help people help their animals, and it is their intent to keep animals with their owners when it is in the ‘animal’s best interest to do so. They are empowered to deal with serious animal cruelty offences by the use of statutory powers and enforcement action.
