Our shelters offer accommodation and care for abandoned, neglected, sick and surrendered animals.

Broken Hill Shelter

Our Broken Hill Shelter provides care, shelter and veterinary treatment to abandoned, injured, neglected and sick animals. Animals arriving at shelters come from a variety of sources, including those:

  • handed in as an injured or sick stray
  • seized by an inspector under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1979

Our Broken Hill Veterinary Hospital is located onsite, offering services to shelter animals and the public. You can find out more here.

The shelter offers boarding facilities for cats and dogs and a range of retail items. Volunteering opportunities are also available.

All animals suitable for adoption can be found here.

Please note, in light of COVID-19, this shelter will be closed to the public on Tuesdays and Thursdays until further notice.

Shelter FAQs

Our shelters do not have the means to accept uninjured stray animals. If you find an uninjured stray animal, you will be referred to your local council pound.

You can see all animals available for adoption here.

Animals available for adoption have undergone a comprehensive veterinary check, and have undergone any other veterinary treatment and rehabilitation necessary. The adoption fee helps cover part of these costs and allows RSPCA NSW to continue caring for animals in need.
