RSPCA NSW provides lifesaving rescue and rehabilitation services to animals in need.

Rescue and Rehabilitate

RSPCA NSW has a range of programs that specialise in rescuing and rehabilitating animals in need. Every day, our incredible teams work together to rescue and care for abandoned, injured, sick and surrendered animals, and to rehabilitate them to ensure they are afforded the highest quality of life.

We have teams who drive Animal Ambulances, transporting animals to receive emergency veterinary treatment and specialised care, as well as teams that provide both animals and people with opportunities to socialise and grow. All of our rescue and rehabilitation programs aim to give animals a second chance at life at their own pace and in their own time.
