Inspectorate Update – 48 Animals Seized at a Property on the South Coast

On Thursday 2 May 2024, at a property on the NSW South Coast, RSPCA NSW Inspectors and members of the NSW Police Force executed a search warrant. That warrant was granted following information received by RSPCA NSW that a person previously prohibited by the NSW Local Court from purchasing, acquiring, taking possession or custody of animals for ten years, was in possession of a number of animals.

A total of 48 animals, including 11 puppies, 3 adult dogs, 2 ducklings, 2 adult ducks, 2 rabbits, 5 quails, 15 guinea pigs, 4 turtles and 4 rats, were seized from the property.

All animals have been admitted into RSPCA NSW care, where they are undergoing veterinary assessments and receiving treatment as needed. This is part of an ongoing cruelty investigation.
