We are committed to assisting bushfire affected communities across the state.

2019/2020 Bushfire Relief

The 2019-20 Australian bushfires were unprecedented in their expanse and ferocity. During the crisis, RSPCA NSW turned up on the ground, both during the emergency and in its wake, to provide support and care to our state’s most vulnerable animals.

Along with the devastation of our wildlife and their habitats, RSPCA NSW acknowledges the owners of pets who had lost their homes during the fires – who had to rebuild their life while caring for their animals. Because of the remarkable help we received from donors all around the world, we were able to assist these people and their pets, easing the physical and financial burden they may have been experiencing by providing supplies, surgeries, treatments, medication and shelter.

The overwhelming generosity of donors from Australia and overseas also meant that, RSPCA NSW was able to lend a hand to over 129 bushfire affected communities and provide assistance and much-needed supplies.

Helping creatures great and small is the foundation on which our organisation has been built and when disasters such as these strike, we will keep our promise to be an effective form of relief and comfort to these vulnerable communities in need.
