The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals; New South Wales (RSPCA NSW) is a not-for-profit organisation in Australia that cares for, treats, protects and rehomes animals across the state. As a charity, we strive to maintain an open-door policy, so no abandoned, neglected, injured or surrendered animal is turned away or forgotten. With an ultimate goal of improving animal welfare education and keeping people and animals together, RSPCA NSW acknowledges the crucial role of humans in keeping our animals safe.
We run six shelters and three veterinary hospitals dedicated to treating, rehabilitating and rehoming animals. In addition to this, there are over 20 volunteer branches that run fundraising events and assist with local microchipping and desexing drives in lower income communities. Along with cats and dogs, RSPCA NSW helps a wide range of other animals, from horses to rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, goats and sheep.
We not only serve animals in need, but also owners who require guidance and support. Our programs tackle animal education and assistance in relation to domestic violence, aged care, homelessness, mental health, and more.
Our Inspectorate is the largest animal enforcement unit in the state, with over 30 inspectors dedicated to investigating instances of alleged animal cruelty and a call centre equipped to handle reports.
