ALBURY VOLUNTEER BRANCH

Do you have a genuine concern for animals and their welfare and enjoy meeting like-minded people? Would you like to be able to do something to help make a difference to an animal's life?

Why not join the local Albury Volunteer Branch and help us raise much needed funds to enable the RSPCA NSW staff and Inspectorate to provide practical assistance and comfort to stray, abused, sick and unwanted animals? All money raised goes to the care and enrichment of the animals lives.

Volunteer Branches are the backbone of the RSPCA work in regional NSW. Each branch is run exclusively by volunteers and plays a vital role in foster care and finding permanent homes for animals, desexing programs, support, fundraising initiatives in their local community – and much, much more!

Around 13 animal cases a day

1,345 animals rehomed to date

6 volunteers

23 meals fed per day

Pets of Older Persons (POOPS)

The Pets of Older Persons (POOPs) program assists socially isolated elderly people by offering assistance with their pets. The POOPs program aims to keep pets and their elderly owners happy, healthy and together in their own homes for as long as possible. READ MORE ABOUT THE POOPs PROGRAM.

For more information about how Albury Branch can help, email the POOPs Team on alburybranch@rspcansw.org.au or phone 0419 874 547.

 

Foster Care Scheme

Albury RSPCA Foster Care Scheme operates according to policies and guidelines as set out by RSPCA Australia. Albury RSPCA has national support to ensure the safe re-homing of animals that come into care.

The purpose of foster care is to place into temporary care those animals that come into the possession of the RSPCA in areas where there are no shelters.

The fostering of animals is an important and rewarding part of the work that Albury RSPCA undertakes and gives those animals, which might not normally be able to be rehomed, a wonderful start in life before moving on to suitable and lifelong homes. READ MORE ABOUT FOSTER CARING.

Albury RSPCA Desexing, Microchipping and Council Registration Program: for pets of the financially disadvantaged

The Albury RSPCA recognises that financially disadvantaged people such as pensioners can often not afford to desex, register and microchip their pets due to associated costs. As a consequence, they may not afford to own a pet or not desex, register and microchip their pet. This can lead to an increase in unwanted pets due to indiscriminate breeding, compromised animal welfare of breeding females and their litters due to high frequency of pregnancies or being unable to locate their pets when lost.

Extensive fundraising has enabled Albury RSPCA to offer a subsidised desexing, microchipping and council registration program for the pets of financially disadvantaged residents within the Albury – Wodonga region, which is generally, but not restricted to, one hour of the region.

What is the cost of the program?

  • Albury RSPCA will contribute by subsidising 40 per cent of the total cost.
  • Financially disadvantaged people will be required to pay 60 per cent of the total cost associated with desexing females or males, registering and microchipping their pet or pets.
  • Participating veterinarians support the RSPCA program by providing approximately 20 per cent discount on desexing and microchipping.

Who is eligible?

If you are a holder of a BLUE Pension Card or Low Income/Health Care card (excluding a Family Tax Benefit Card), you may apply to the Albury RSPCA for the subsidised program.
